Continental Greece ((ギリシア語:Στερεά Ελλάδα), ''Stereá Elláda''; formerly , ''Chérsos Ellás''), colloquially known as ''Roúmeli'' (Ρούμελη), is a traditional geographic region of Greece. In English the area is usually called Central Greece, but the equivalent Greek term (Κεντρική Ελλάδα, ''Kentrikí Elláda'') is rarely used, except for the NUTS 1 statistical region Kentriki Ellada.
Since 1987, its territory has been divided among the administrative regions of Central Greece and Attica, and the regional unit of Aetolia-Acarnania in the administrative region of West Greece.
The region has traditionally been known as ''Roúmeli'' (Ρούμελη), a name deriving from the Turkish word ''Rumelia'' or ''Rumeli'', meaning "the land of the Rûm (Romans, i.e. the Byzantine Greeks )" and originally encompassing all of the Ottoman Empire's European possessions. The official name ''Stereá Elláda'' ("Continental" or "Mainland" Greece), derives from the juxtaposition with the Peloponnese peninsula across the Corinthian Gulf, and the fact that these two territories formed the independent Greek state after the Greek War of Independence.
