Mapping European Stereotypes

Europe’s cultural, ethnic, religious, and political diversity naturally leads to its various nationalities developing stereotypes of the Others. Graphic designer Yanko Tsvetkov created a series of entertaining maps to give us an idea of a few countries’ perspectives of their neighbouring states.

It’s interesting to note how these stereotypes typically reveal more about the country (or our perception of the them) that is doing the criticizing.
