can you specify what is Western Europe, what is Central Europe, and what is Balkans, and how to make a difference in these categories? When one place becomes fully one category, when 'almost' and when not?

Default To mpetrovic: easy

it is what many Croats say about their own country, when tourists say they are in Balkans, Croats react very quickly - saying this is Central Europe, not Balkans.
We are speaking in cultural sense , rather then geographical and it is never clear , never obvious, no sharp border, a village in Slovenia might have really Balkan feel, while sea resort in south of Croatia resemble one in Italy...
