In terms of UNIX®, a directory is a special file which contains a list of hardlinks to other files. These other files also can be directories of course, so it's possible to create a "hierarchy of directories" - the UNIX®-typical filesystem structure.

The structure begins at the special directory / (root directory) and all other directory entries are subdirectories of it.
