You do realise that its not called Great for any arrogant / pride reasons don't you?

Its simply because its bigger (greater) than Brittany in France. Also to suggest that British people are ignorant when considering Eastern Europe is a little ignorant yourself don't you think?

Anyway,
Frankfurt
Warsaw
London
Paris
Rotterdam.

Relax, butch83, get accustomed that most of Western Europeans see Poland as one of East European countries and that's not matter of pride, ignorance and something like that. They do it on the way of partition of Europe during the Cold War. In that time Central Europe didn't exist, there was only West Europe meant as free and democratic part of continent together with East Europe gotten as countries under control of the former USSR. So, what I said, get calmed down.

Well my post definitely wasnt aimed at ppl like You, rather those who think great comes from pride reasons, and believe me there are many.
I have spent something like 5 months in UK(north-east England) and have encountered really ignorant ppl, as well as some more wide-mided, but amount of those ignorant was large. I apologise if You felt offended.

Many ppl also know exactly that Poland is in central Europe, but still they like to say east putting it to the same pot with Russia. (As if we have more connection with'em)
I did refer to such ppl.

@Dzwonsson
Your right I wasnt like chill and relaxed at the moment writing this post
