Images of a continent

September 30, 2010

After the colorful images of U.S. cities (that aren’t quite so colorful upon closer inspection), I came across another set of maps today: Europe according to stereotypes.

Yanko Tsvetkov aka Alphadesigner produced a number of maps of Europe, all with a sense of humor and a wink. Again, a second look reveals that he hit a lot of stereotypes right on the head.

To my American readers: Do you really associate Germany with “dirty porn”?

Europe According to the United States of America

My favorites: According to the UK, the EU countries are the “evil federated empire of Europe.” Germans, on the other hand, consider most of the Mediterranean states their personal playground with “cheap hotels here.” Somehow, no one has a good impression of Russia.

See all the maps on Tsvetkov’s website or flickr page. Hat tip to i-ref, who posted this on facebook.
