Eastern Europe is a loose term, but in general it refers to the eastern half of the European continent which is geographically, politically and culturally diverse. It is commonly considered that countries east of the German-Poland border (to the Ural & Caucasus Mountains) including the former Yugoslavian states, are considered to be part of modern day Eastern Europe.
