Abstract: Project was focused at analysis of pattern of political orientations of the masses in Central and Eastern Europe in comparation with three member states of the European Union. Attitudes and values of the citizens were analysed regarding their implications on individual habits and behaviour, as well as the interaction between individual coping strategies and collective behaviour. The project included 11 European nations. Three, where the transformation from an authoritarian to a democratic system was successful (Germany, Greece and Spain), five, where the transition process was advanced (Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Estonia), three, where the transition process was on a good course (Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia), and two, where the transition process was still in the initial phase (Albania, Russia). Germany was a special case in this design, since West Germany represented the case of a successful transformation towards a consolidated liberal democracy and East Germany was still a case of transformation. The widely cited idiom of "die Mauer in den Köpfen" (a wall in the heads) shows that inspite of the institutional unification it still can be spoken of two Germanys as far as the mental map is concerned. The research project was organised as a "most different design", which allowed to compare systematic differences of the countries
