With a long history of cultural and economic achievement, starting as far back as the Palaeolithic, the origins of Western democratic and individualistic culture were laid in Ancient Greece. The Roman Empire divided the continent along the Rhine and Danube for several centuries.

Today, much of Europe has been shaped by the break up of the Roman Empire, the aftermath of World War I, the break up of the Ottoman Empire and the end of World War II which split Europe in between democratic, capitalist West and authoritarian, communist East.
