Geographical-political term Central Europe is not strictly defined neither in time nor in space. The states and the groupings of states that have ever occurred in this region are typical for some significant qualitative distinctive characteristics comparing to those states of Western Europe. Even though these Central European states account for conglomerates of nationalities, ethnics, and religions, in fact, there is no destructive war that might have been waged among them by the end of 20th century. Central Europe, on its way to a new perception of the internal and foreign policy of states on the threshold of the 21st century, had to overcome two enormous barriers. The first one concerned ideological change, the second one was related to the change of economic rules in national economies. From time to time, theoreticians differ in their opinion on which of those barriers was more preeminent to be overcome first. Logically, the political changes and the acceptance of a new ideology were a high priority, thus a base for the transformation of economies had to be formed, which has been proved, especially from a time perspective.
