Eastern Europe is for everyone
Eastern Europe is a region that encompasses many different cultures, ethnicities, languages, and histories. Grouping all of these countries under a single designation can sometimes be problematic; experts, scholars, and those living there label parts of the region according to varying sets of criteria, and heated debates have been known to erupt when one party has felt that a certain country has been miscategorized.
However, it’s important to note that the countries broadly classified as being a part of Eastern Europe have one thing in common: they were all behind the Iron Curtain before its fall, and this political boundary of the last century helps us define a region whose development, especially until the 1990s, has been very different from that of the Western region.
The most widely recognizes sub-regions of Eastern Europe include:
- East Central Europe
- The Baltics
- Southeastern Europe/Balkans
- Eastern Europe
