    Can't think of a more Central European country than Austria (except for Czechia, of course).

    I find it funny how the West/East trolls conveniently ignore the fact that the Austrian capital is more to the East than Prague or the whole of Slovenia, yet the latter two should be referred to as "Eastern", whereas Austria is supposed to be "Western". Right :lol: According to the same logic, Rome is a northern European city, but Athens and Madrid are situated in Africa.

    Anyway, why do you feed on this idiotic CFC meme, holy king?

    It's either Southern Germany or Western Hungary.

    Also, lol @ Winner for suggesting that anyone who disagrees with him is a troll! :goodjob:

    No. You're not here long enough to be entirely familiar with this particular meme, but if you were, you'd know it's one of the most usual pretexts for trolling on this forum.

    While it is true that Prague is (barely) in the western half of europe and Vienna is in eastern half of Europe, some 70% of Austria lies in western Europe while only about 40% of the Czech republic lies in western Europe.

    Also, using your logic and the "facts" of the "Central Europe" proponents, Moscow (which lies west of 40°E) would actually fall west of the central-to-eastern dividing line making Russia, along with Poland "Central European" (which is why the whole concept of "Central Europe" is stupid)

    P.S. Slovenia is South European.

    Only in a contemporary political division of Europe you can separate it in just two parts. In this case it would be western Europe. In all other cases, which are far more and far more important, Austria is in central Europe.
    Whoever thinks that central Europe is a stupid concept has huge gaps in knowledge of European History and Geography.

    Austria is in Western Europe, while Poland and the Czech Republic are in Eastern Europe, at least if we go by the most widely accepted definitions, which understandably hinge in the old Cold War division of Europe. Attempts to undo this convention by ashamed Poles and Czechs are way too melodramatic and lacking in worthy motivations to be taken seriously, so the definition will likely stay for the forseeable future.

    Austria is part of Germany, so obviously Western Europe.

    I would have it as central Europe, along with Germany, Czechia, Slovenia and Hungary. Slovakia is debatable.

    Don't forget that only backwater Eastern European countries would have such insecurities with their own identities.
