Where is the border of Europe and Asia?
To find the border between Europe and Asia, you first need to open a geographical atlas. You will see that most often the boundary between these parts of the world goes along the eastern base of the Ural Mountains, Mugodzhar, and the Emba River, along the northern shore of the Caspian Sea, along the Kerch Strait and the Kumo-Manych Depression. In our country, the total length of the border is more than five and a half thousand kilometers. Of these, 2,000 km stretch along the Ural Range, and nine hundred meters along the Caspian Sea.
It should be noted that in some sources the border between Europe and Asia is determined by the watershed of the Ural Range, namely, along the Ural River, as well as the watershed of the Caucasus Range.
How is the border
Now consider in more detail where the border of Europe and Asia. As we noted earlier, its line starts from the coast of the Kara Sea. It goes, starting with the eastern base of the Ural range. The border line runs between the Republic of Komi and the Nenets Autonomous Area from the West and the Khanty-Mansiysk and Yamalo-Nenetsky Districts from the east.
Then the border goes east of the administrative border between the two regions - from the west of the Perm region, and from the east - the Sverdlovsk region. The southwestern regions of the latter remain in Europe.
Further, the border leaves in Europe Satka, Katav-Ivanovsky and Ashinsky districts of the Chelyabinsk region, and in addition - the western territories of cities and regions of regional subordination bordering Bashkiria. The border also divides the Orenburg region, leaving most of its territory in Europe. In the Aktobe region of Kazakhstan, the border continues to the south. There she goes along the eastern foot of Mugodzhar and goes to the Caspian lowland along the Emba River.
