Don't drink too much next time you're in Russia, being in the same country and two continents will really mess with your head :)
Yeah! Well, at least acknowledging the existence of Central Europe would
make the abberration of standing one feet in Eastern Europe and the other
in Western completely impossible :-)
UN likes the term eastern europe
That's political division which is outdated right now after the fall of Soviet block.
Geographically it's nonsensical with Czech Republic having half of the territory
futher west than Austria and still being considered "eastern europe" and Austria
"western" or Bulgaria being further south than Slovenia for example, but it is
Slovenia being considered "southern" country.
So - neither geographically nor politically that map doesn't make much sense.
