Fall of Communism in Central and Eastern Europe

1989 - It is a landmark year in the history of Central and Eastern Europe!!
Almost 20 years back - in 1989 - Central & Eastern Europe broke away from the shackles of Communism!!

This is how CEE looked way back in 1989.

And this how it looks now!!

A complete change on the face of the world map!!
Catch this excellent article - with nice graphic content - from the BBC - which charts the fall of Communism in CEE.
And this article from the US Department of State gives a nice gist of the events between 1989-1991 which triggered this massive change!!
