The aim of the paper is to analyze the premises of establishing Europe's borders including the aspect of the EU enlargement. The analysis was conducted by retrogressive and diachronic methods on the basis of some research projects initiated by the Institute of Social Studies of the Faculty of Economics of the Polytechnic University of Ancona. The results of the analysis clearly indicate that despite the fact that the historical, geographical and civilizational criteria (including those of mythology and the history of writing) enable us to establish the basic cognitive reasons, they do not allow us to establish strict and clear-cut borders. One may draw a conclusion that due to Europe's development prospects and the interests of the EU member states apart from objective factors of historical and geographical nature pragmatic elements in the economic, social and political contexts should be taken into consideration.
