Modern countries and ancient culturesVIEW BY COUNTRY
Some of the oldest cultures of Europe came out of the east yet Eastern Europe is also home to some of the world’s most recent countries.
The region has been influenced for generations from the east and the west and has combined the best of both into a fascinating part of the continent. Although numerous civilisations have claimed Eastern Europe as its own, the local identities have never been lost.
For a traveller, Eastern Europe offers a chance to explore countries that haven’t yet been overrun by mass tourism. Undiscovered natural wonders sit just a short distance away from beautiful cities and incredible historical sites.
