    The thread title made me :).

    It would be something like the following as a sentence in a text:

    Does "Europe" need "the"?
    Or
    Do we use 'the' before 'Europe'?

    But not using inverted commas in its title probably makes a thread better searchable. :thumbsup:

    In your context, the would be wrong.

    In other contexts, it would be needed.
    The Europe of 20 years ago is long gone.​
