Europe Day is celebrated on two days: 5 May (by Council of Europe) and 9 May (by European Union (EU))
Europe is a landmass bordered by the Arctic Ocean and other water bodies in the north, the Atlantic Ocean in the west, and the Mediterranean Sea in the south. The surface area of this continent is 10,180,000 square kilometers (3,930,000 square miles), which is about 2% of the Earth's surface and about 6.8% of the total landmass on Earth.

The biggest country in Europe in area as well as by population is Russia. The Vatican City, on the other hand, is the smallest country in this continent. Although it is the second smallest continent by surface, it is the third most populous continent after Asia and Africa.
