Eastern countries are Poland (which actually lies on the north) and of course Slovakia too, once the sister, both being part of state called Czechoslovakian republic. Czech is hilly and mountainous, only around 20 percent of the county is flat. But hills aren’t so high, only few rising over 1.500 meters above the sea level. With around 10 million of inhabitants, this is not one of biggest countries in Europe but also far from being very small.
