By Newsgroup Usenet July 8th, 2009

Europe is a continent whose boundaries are the Atlantic Ocean in the west, the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Ural Mountains and Ural River in the east, the Caspian Sea, Caucasus mountains and Black Sea in the southeast and the Mediterranean Sea as the southern boundary. Europe is known as the birth place of western culture, Greek culture and also by the Roman Empire which left its influence on language, engineering government, architecture and general history. No surprise then that there are a multitude of European Newsgroups on the USENET that deal specifically to each part of this continent.

Europe newsgroups are almost always open to everyone who has any interests in any one or whole of the nations that compromise the union. Be it cultural, political, social, travel related, sports related or food, each provide a forum for discussion and exchange of information by a hosts of different communities.

Groups exist for a host of countries such as Greece , France, United Kingdom, Czech, Sovak Republics newsgroups and many more. Most of these newsgroups revolve around the same concept. For instance, soc.culture.german newsgroup on USENET is intended to generally provide a medium for those interested to express, share, and exchange their views, ideas, and feelings about Germany and Germanic culture whilst the soc.culture.europe newsgroup provides a forum to those European countries currently without their own newsgroup.

Each one of these communities host a great deal of information and most cover all of the most recent headlines occuring lately in these countries.
