Natural regions of the world are referred to as regions that are naturally created when this world was formed. The natural regions of the world are the mountains, hills, plains and other related natural monuments. The natural regions of the world also include water bodies such as rivers, seas and oceans among many others. Europe is considered to be the continent with a lot of region occupied by nature. Europe has some of the most beautiful landscapes such as the Alps in Switzerland, Rysy mountains in Poland, Lake Bodom in Finland and Dettifoss which is considered to be one of the most powerful waterfalls in the world.

Europe is also a home for many endangered animals which need a natural habitat in order to survive such as red foxes, lynx, wild cats and many others.
