A simple topographical Europe Map
Here we present a simple topographical map of Europe. The darker reds and browns are the higher and mountainous regions. The lighter brown and pink regions are the hilly regions and foothills of the mountains. The light green regions are the plains areas and the dark green areas are the sea level or close to sea level areas.
As you can see as you head East, Europe tends to get flatter and lower. The only exception to this are the Ural mountains, which blip up a little as we head into Russia proper. The highest regions are the Alps and the Pyrenese mountains. Although there are some regions in Bosnia-Herzegovina and in Bulgaria that are quite mountainous also.
Here is a blank map of Europe. Unlike most other blank Europe maps we have made the oceans blue to distinguish them from the actual continental mass.
The assignment here is to try and name all the countries. You can either do this in a program like MS paint or you can print the map out and then hand write all the country names in.

Above we have a simple World Map with continents and Regions in different colors. Here at “Map of Europe” we realized that many users coming to our site wanted to look at a map of the world and the continents and regions.
Continental borders are a little ambiguous and fluid at the moment and we tried to cater for this by adding some regions.
Below is a list continental border anomalies.
- Western Russia is marked as being part of Asia even though generally it is considered part of Europe. We did this because we felt there was room on the web for a simpler version of a world map, one that ignored some of the border ambiguities.
- We have added the Middle East as a region. This was due to many users emailing us and asking how does the middle east relate to the rest of the world.
- Australasia is marked in aqua and this region is sometimes referred to as Oceania. This is not stricvtly accurate but like we said above these matters are somewhat ambiguous. Strictly seaking the content is genrally referred to as just Australia.
- Egypt is marked as Part of Africa above. While this is strictly correct it could have also fallen in under the region of the Middle East.
This map is not meant to be a definitive or even strictly accurate depiction of the world. As we said earlier that tends to be fluid anyway. This map is meant to be a quick reference guide for students and teachers to use when doing geography or cartography on the fly.
