Summary: Eastern European Culture

In Eastern Europe, most of the languages are Indo-European. There are Slavic languages, Polish and Czech, and Baltic languages, Latvian and Lithuanian. The religions in Eastern Europe are Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Islam. Religious differences caused many conflicts in the Balkan Peninsula.

School is mandatory and free of charge. Former Soviet-bloc countries were challenged by fundings as well as a health care system. Most eastern europeans have access to health care, though.

Music in Eastern Europe ranges from Folk and Classical music to modern music from the United States and Western Europe. Literature is also important, since they have produced many great fiction writers, such as Franz Kafka.

Do they have a specific favorite type of literature? Like fiction, scifi, etc.?

What was the first language to originate in Eastern Europe?
