Well, Michael Everson back in 1995 defined it thus:

        "Europe" extends from the Arctic and Atlantic (including
        Iceland and the Faroe Islands) southeastwards to the
        Mediterranean (including Malta and Cyprus), with its
        eastern and southern borders being the Ural Mountains,
        the Ural River, the Caspian Sea, and Anatolia, inclusive
        of Transcaucasia.

A more precise political definition can be found at .
