Well, so if a large chunk of Russia should be considered European, then in 'geographical terms,' Poland should lie in Western Europe, shouldn't she? I wonder where in Europe, in 'geographical terms,' you would locate e.g. Norway?
The Eastern 'border' of Europe is considered to be in the Ural location. So it's only a "tiny" part of Russia which is in Europe...
Poland is for me something like a "North-Central country" as i saw a few times...
Norway is a 'West-Northern' country ;)
I wonder why? You seem to think that Eastern European countries are those where the Cyrillic alphabet is being commonly used, don't you?
No Cyrillic alphabet in Greece, am I wrong ? So, in my opinion, Greece is a Southern country.
It seems that, after all, the term 'Eastern Europe' is a racial term.
Not really. What about Western, Northern or Southern Europe ? Nothing bad.
