Well Russia is divided between Europe and Asia and the Asian part begins at the Ural mountains if I'm not mistaken, which are north west of Kazakhstan. The dividing line actually passes through the western part of Kzakhstan over the Caspian Sea, which makes Russia too far east for this quiz.

Just say that Chelyabinsk is the border or Russian Asia and Europe. Or just west of it. I don't know much.

No. Although Russia's capital is in Europe, that doesn't mean the whole country is in Europe. Most of Russia is geographically part of Asia and, as HatemAli said, it is generally considered to start at the Ural Mountains.

I also tried Russia since the180th meridian runs through it on the tip near Alaska (Chukchi Peninsula). I know it's just a technicality, but one step to the east over the 180th would land you in the westernmost location in Asia.

If Turkey and Georgia are included, both of which are across two continents, the.n surely Russia and Egypt should be also

Nov 4, 2016
Both countries are generally counted to Asia. I guess that was the intention of the quizmaster.

Russia is always an expection, however the asian part of Russia is far more in the east so Russia should not be on the list.

Actually, the russian part of Asia is by far the westernmost part of the continent since the easternmost point is 169°40'W

There is a border between Asia and Europe through the Caucus Mountains which includes Georgia, Russia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan. Physical regions are commonly use to separate continents. Example: Panama Canal separating the Americas and the Ural mountains separating Asia and Europe. So when the borders of the continents were chosen, they made a border through the middle of the Caucus Mountains and Georgia, Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan just happened to be there.

If the name of this quiz is "10 Westernmost Countries in Asia" Egypt should make this list.

You should change the name of the quiz to "10 Westernmost Asian Countries"

And Cyprus... If you ask me Cyprus is an Asian country, but it shouldn't be on this quiz, because it's not part of the Asian continent

It's closer to Asia than to Europe, but I agree that it shouldn't be in this list. It's definitely not "within the continent of Asia."

If Turkey, another transcontinental country is here, you should probably consider adding Egypt. Egypt is a transcontinental country between Africa and Asia, with the Sinai Peninsula being a part of the Asian continent. And it is Western enough to qualify for the quiz.

Started off by typing Cape Verde, Gambia, Senegal, Mauritania... Swore a little, tried a few more... Swore more... Worked out my North East South West again incase I got it wrong, I hadnt... Swore some more and assumed the quiz was broken, then realised it didn't say Africa it said Asia... Swore some more. Clives top tip of the day: Read the question properly!
