Regions of Europe

Updated: Jul 18, 2020

Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Western Europe are the four European regions as defined by the UN Geoscheme for Europe.

The UN Statistics Division has created the UN Geoscheme for Europe that subdivides the continent into four divisions for statistical convenience. These divisions put European countries in one of four groups: Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Northern, and Southern Europe. The UN Geoscheme specifies the countries included in each of these divisions. However, this system of division of Europe is not the only official division that is made. Several other systems dividing Europe into many parts on the basis of geography, politics, and culture also exist.
