Hi

I found a boundary relation for the European Union, but not for Europe. Is there one?

While the boundaries of the European Union are pretty clear-cut (but also surprisingly complicated), the boundaries of "Europe" are a bit fuzzy and subjective (there are different opinions for the western limit, essentially). It's not as bad as "The Alps" for example, but it's still something that would be hard to agree on. If OSM had a "Europe" relation, it would probably have multiple ;)

*eastern limit. The western limit is quite unanimous, salty, and wet ;)

@Piskvor Some of of the residents of my country (the UK) may wish to set a western limit too - even though it's hard to argue with geography, I'm sure some would want to try :)

Not as far as I know, there is a node though :-) : https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/25871341.
