Culture of Europe
Language is a very important part of culture, and Europe has a widespread variety of languages, with each country having its own national language, although some of these languages can be grouped together into languages families.
In recent years, westernisation has spread from the west of Europe to the East. For example, countries such as Czech Republic and Croatia have experienced positive econmical changes, replcaing their old reputation as poor, backwards countries into newer, moderner, more prosperous countries. The enlargement of the European Union has helped this cause.
