World Heritage Sites are designated by UNESCO for having cultural, historical, scientific or other form of significance. Europe is a landmass found totally in the Northern Hemisphere and for the most part in the Eastern Hemisphere.

It involves the westernmost promontories of the mainland landmass of Eurasia, it shares the mainland landmass of Afro-Eurasia with both Asia and Africa and is lined by the Arctic Ocean toward the north, the Atlantic Ocean toward the west, the Mediterranean Sea toward the south, and Asia toward the east.

Europe is normally viewed as isolated from Asia by the watershed of the Ural Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian Sea, the Greater Caucasus, the Black Sea, and the streams of the Turkish Straits.

Albeit quite a bit of this boundary is over land, Europe is for the most part concurred the situation with a full mainland due to its incredible actual size and the heaviness of its history and traditions.
