Outline Map of Eurasia

print this map

Eurasia political outline map shows the governmental boundaries of countries in Europe and Asia. Eurasia is defined by the combined continental landmass of Europe and Asia. The division between Europe and Asia as two different continents is a historical social construct because there is no real physical separation between the continents. Eurasia is recognized as just one continent in some parts of the world.

The ideas of Europe and Asia as continents go back to ancient times and their borders are arbitrary. Historically the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara where seen as the separation between Europe and Asia today Ural and Caucasus ranges are more often used to separate the two continents. The Urals have served as a marker between Europe and Asia for generations but again its not a natuaral division between the land masses. Eurasia is associated with Africa at the Suez Canal, and Eurasia is in some cases joined with Africa to make the biggest bordering landmass on Earth called Afro-Eurasia.

Most of Eurasia is on the Eurasian tectonic plate but it also includes the Amur Plate, Yangtze Plate, Sunda Plate, Burma Plate, Indian Plate, Arabian Plate, Anatolian Plate and Aegean Sea Plate. The geodynamics of Euroasia is dominated by the interaction between the Eurasian Plate and the Indian Plates.

In the above map you will see all the countries within the Eurasia landmass outlined by their political borders.
