Abstract: Integrated cultural-spatial systems of wide ranges can be called
civilizations, while their peripheral areas or civilization borders limitrophes.
Nowadays, eight great civilizations can be distinguished at the world map Indian,
Chinese, Japanese, Islamic, European (Western), Russian, Latin American and
African they infiltrate one into another, depending on the level of communications
development. The aim of this article is to stress the basic specifics and individualities
of Western, Central-Eastern, Russian-Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, as cultural
areas of the European civilization.

CULTURAL AREAS OF EUROPEAN CIVILIZATION
Summary
Europe, in the cultural-geographical manner, represents highly diversified continent.
From the geographic point of view, European civilizational values have been spreading
and integrating different cultural areas. In this process, the most important role belongs
to the communications, or more precisely communicability and opposite barrierity
of the territory. Spatial communications, carrying inside the context of integration of
differences, have been globalized. Most of differences between the four cultural areas
of European civilization Western, Central-Eastern, Russian-Eastern Europe and
South-Eastern, were based on different fields of cultural interactions. European
strategic interest is, still, united Europe. Without the geographical integration, it would
be pointless to talk about its spiritual integration. Connection between the Europe and
geography is not only geographically and historically caused, but is also so strong that
creates its cultural individuality. Geodiversity (ethnic, cultural and religious) is one of
specifics and basis of European spirit humanistic, democratic, and motivated by high
ideals and values.
