Europe is separated from Asia by the Black Sea, the Bosporus, the Sea of Marmara, and the Dardanelles in the south, By the Urals and the Ural River in the east; by the Caspian Sea and the Caucasus in the southeast. The Strait of Gibraltar and the Mediterranean Sea separate it from Africa. Europe is washed in the north by the Arctic Ocean, and in the west by the Atlantic Ocean, with which the North Sea and the Baltic Sea are connected.
