Sweden – a socialist union, a meatball-eating nation or Volvo Country. Designer Yanko Tsvetkov has a range of prejudices painted new maps of Europe.
Yanko Tsvetkov, 34, originally from Bulgaria but live in England, has designed the new maps of Europe – based on stereotypes of different countries.
A map describes Europe as it is perceived in the United States. Where produced Scandinavia as a socialist union, Switzerland as a banking giant and Russia as the paranoid oil empire.
Another map describes how the French see in other European countries. Poland is a country of plumbers, Turkey is “definitely not Europeans” and the Italians are a loud but friendly people.
The link to Tsvetkov’s website where his maps have been published have been circulated widely on Twitter and Facebook. He had a total of half a billion visitors to the website, writes the Norwegian newspaper VG.
