It's one of the reasons why I think that Slovakia, Czech republic, Poland and Hungary should be grouped as Central Europe, because they share a lot of identity and history that is somewhat different from that of the countries further east. Though of course as has been mentioned earlier they can be both Eastern and Central European. Actually I think that if it came to actual geographical division of Europe, parts of the Central European countries would be in Western and part in Eastern Europe as most if not all of them claim that the geographical centre of Europe is in their country.
