Are Georgia and Armenia part of Europe or Asia?
- John PLv 71 month ago
Before the Soviet Union collapsed around 1990, Georgia and Armenia were considered part of Europe, because they were in the European part off the USSR. Then there were big upheavals and the border of Europe and Asia around the Caucasus Mountains moved about 100 miles north and so Armenia and Georgia became part of Asia, which they still are. What was left of the Soviet Union then became Russia once again.

In geographical terms, these countries are neither par of Europe nor Asia. At the same time, they are both. But in cultural terms, they can be regarded as a part of Asia or Europe.
