Eastern Europe is the part of Europe, which characterizes its eastern territories. Its territory changed with the course of history. Thus, during the Cold War Eastern Europe was considered all the countries of the Soviet bloc. After the end of the Cold War, many countries began to refer to other regions.

According to the UN definition, Eastern Europe includes the following countries: Belarus, Bulgaria, Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Ukraine and the Czech Republic.

Historically, the fundamental feature of the eastern part of Europe is often considered the influence of oriental civilizations (from Byzantium to the Mongol reign in Russia and the Ottoman on Balkans). The most widespread religion in the east is Orthodoxy.
