    Hello, I have noticed something about Eastern European countries which I do not see as much in other places. Why is it that houses in eastern Europe tend to have these sorts of white almost transparent curtains. They are hard to describe but they are like drapes and almost glow, very striking in appearance. They look ghost like and like something from the 1960s. One could describe them almost as crochet like. Have any of you seen these and know what I am speaking about?

    Yes, those are exactly them. I wonder why they are so popular in eastern Europe.

    I think it's just tradition. In any ld village you will see such curtains. Probably just how it has been done since ages.

    They are defensive curtains. You can see out but they can't clearly see in. Yet you still get some sunshine.

    We have them at home too, but I dont live in eastern Europe. The room looks much more homely with them. I was very frustated when have been living at the college and I had no one in my room.

    In daylight only… At night when you switch the light on, and there is darkness outside, you will not see anything, but they will see you :)

    Aye, you're sniper bait. Something needs to be done to fix this fundamental weakness of eastern nations or we'll fall prey to the velvet curtain armed enemy.

    My son has asthma and we used to have these kind of drapes.  Used to run them in the washer and then dryer on delicate.  Ended up putting Roman shades on the windows and are much happier with them.  If I ever moved to Europe, the two things I would not live without would be a washer and dryer.  I know they are not popular in Southern Europe at all.  I would think that in colder Slavic nations they would be very popular.
