In what ways are Eastern Europe and Northern Europe different?
I know you have already told me of what to consider and ponder about, but I am truly struggling with this question. Is there, perhaps, a link you could provide for me?
Consider where the Mountains are:
Ural Mountains, which form the boundary between Europe and Asia
Caucasus Mountains, which also separate Europe and Asia, and are the namesake of the Caucasian race
Carpathian Mountains, a major mountain range in Central and Southern Europe
Eastern Europe and Northern Europe are different from their climate?
The only knowledge I gained from this was their differences in climate. I apologize, but, for whatever reason, this is difficult for me to understand.
What is the major difference in climate?
Eastern Europe has a drier, continental climate, whereas Northern Europe consists of climates varying from maritime to maritime subarctic climates, and subarctic or Arctic to temperate/continental climates.
In other words, Northern Europe is much colder than Eastern Europe.
Also, Northern European people tend to have a higher standard of living than those in Eastern Europe.
