Europe according to Luxembourg

The French are arrogant, the Italians are noisy and Switzerland has excellent boarding schools – that is according to this map of Europe, as seen from Luxembourg.

(CS/DN) The French are arrogant, the Italians are noisy and Switzerland has excellent boarding schools – that is according to this map of Europe, as seen from Luxembourg.

Created back in July 2013 for German magazine “Spiegel” , we have just stumbled across this special map designed by Yanko Tsvetkov, with the help of a Luxembourg friend.

The map is only one of a whole series, called Atlas of Prejudice, which explores national stereotypes as seen from different countries in Europe.

So, do Luxembourgers really think that Spaniards are backwards, that Brits are gentlemen and Irish beer is muddy? Are the Russians dangerous bullies, the Germans smart-asses and the Dutch and Belgians family?

Let us know what you think about this map in the comments and click here for more of Tsvetkov's works. Alternatively, visit Pinterest where journalist Fabien Cazenave has collected various other such maps.
