Central Europe is the region of Europe between Eastern Europe and Western Europe, frequently taken to include Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and any others?.

One used to joke that Central Europe is that part of that continent, which by people from Western Europe is considered Eastern, and by those from Eastern Europe is considered Western. Another one define Central Europe as those part of Europe Western from culture and history, which were conquered by Soviet Union.

Is there a clear definition for this term, or does which countries it refers to vary?

What relationship does this have with the German idea of Mitteleuropa?
