Overview[ edit ] Satellite image of Europe by night Some geographical texts refer to a Eurasian continent given that Europe is not surrounded by sea and its southeastern border has always been variously defined for centuries. In terms of shape, Europe is a collection of connected peninsulas and nearby islands.
The two largest peninsulas are mainland Europe and Scandinavia to the north, divided from each other by the Baltic Sea.
Three smaller peninsulas— IberiaItaly and the Balkans —emerge from the southern margin of the mainland. Land relief in Europe shows great variation within relatively small areas.
The southern regions are mountainous, while moving north the terrain descends from the high AlpsPyrenees and Carpathiansthrough hilly uplands, into broad, low northern plains, which are vast in the east.
An arc of uplands also exists along the northwestern seaboard, beginning in southwestern Irelandcontinuing across through western and northern Great Britainand up along the mountainous, fjord -cut spine of Norway. This description is simplified. Sub-regions such as Iberia and Italy contain their own complex features, as does mainland Europe itself, where the relief contains many plateaus, river valleys and basins that complicate the general trend.
Iceland and the British Isles are special cases. The former is of North Atlantic volcanic formation, while the latter consist of upland areas once joined to the mainland until cut off by rising sea levels.
Peninsula of peninsulas[ edit ] Europe is sometimes called a "peninsula of peninsulas", to draw attention to the fact that Europe is a relatively small, elongated appendage to Asia, and that a large part of Europe is made up of peninsulas.Figures and information on Luxembourg.
