Eastern Europe - March 30th, 2011

This image includes parts of Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, Ukraine and Romania (clockwise from bottom left). Lake Balaton, in Hungary, appears as a greenish body of water near the left edge in the lower half of the image.

Part of the arch of the Carpathians mountain range can be seen crossing the image. The visible sections of the range are mainly part of the Outer and Inner Western Carpathians (mostly along the border of Poland and Slovakia) and part of Outer and Inner Eastern Carpathians (here, stretching across Poland into Ukraine and Romania).
