What does it mean to be Central European? It means many things which you realize when you leave. Why? Because you know and understand more about the continent of Europe and you speak at least two languages. In short: you’ve got a multi-ethnic culture. This does not mean, however, that you feel less attached to your birthplace – if anything, it’s the contrary. Central Europe is a cultural reality. Its territory is furrowed by long rivers, various types of mountain chains; it is rich in forests. It is home to peoples of various origins – the descendants of Germans, Slavs and Hungarians (Ugro-Finns, to be exact, who do not belong to the Aryan family) – each with their own language, customs and traditions and belonging prevalently to the Christian faith (Catholic, Greek-Orthodox, Lutheran, as well as Hebrew and rare Islamic groups in the Balkans).
