"Central Europe"

The Germans use the term "Mitteleuropa" (Central Europe) which has no real equivalent in English (but see this entry at Wikipedia). Now, the Economist has published an interesting video, which argues that the term Eastern Europe is also out of date.

Some of the new terms proposed must be in jest, but it is interesting that the term "Central Europe" is not among them.

  1. I wonder if Mittel euopa historically represents Germany's feel of dominating the region?
