Well technically seeing as Europe and Asia form a single land mass, they should technically be the same continent (which is often referred to as Eurasia), but otherwise, the answer is actually both. It's known as a transcontinental country, spanning across both Europe and Asia. For more information about transcontinental countries, please see the wikipedia article about it:

Generally speaking, everything west of the Ural Mountains is considered to be in Europe, everything east of the Urals is in Asia.

Aleksandr Orlov the meerkat is european but the worlds fattest boy Jambik Khatokov is asian! I just hope I am right about Aleksandr being european cos I will cringe if he is asian, like the indians and the chinese and the muslims. Aleksandr is definitely european! Simples!
