Europe according to… stereotypes!

Europe according to…? Stereotypes!
A mapping project by Yanko Tsvetkov.

It’s a long time since the map section has seen any additions, but having stumbled over the excellent “Mapping Stereotypes Project” by Yanko Tsvetkov aka alphadesigner I couldn’t resist to amend the collection. In an interview with the Telegraph, Yanko explained:

“I created the first one in 2009 because at that time there was an energy crisis in Europe. I just created it to amuse my friends but when I put it up on my website so many people liked it that I decided to really focus on the project of mapping the stereotypes based on different places in Europe. I was surprised by the reaction because I never really expected it to take off like this.”

Here are, in alphabetical order, Europe according to Britain and, after the jump, Europe according to Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain, the United States and the Vatican.

As Yanko put it: “Sense of humor highly recommended.” Indeed :) Enjoy!
