Eastern Europe – exactly where is it? There is no exact boundary to show what land it encompasses and the term is used to describe a geo-political and cultural area in different ways, depending on who you speak to and the classification they’re using.
In a general sense Eastern Europe describes the countries East of Germany, many of which were formerly communist states post World War II. However the difference can be measured much further back, with the Eastern and Western versions of Christianity lasting from the 11th Century until today.
