Yanko Tsvetkov (previously here) is far from being a professional cartographer, but he has quit a thing for maps. The Bulgarian-born graphic artist, who now resides in Spain, is acutely aware of both the serious inter-cultural debates and disputes gripping the world, and the ridiculous stereotypes we all hold against each other. His desire to reconcile the two culminated in the Atlas of Prejudice, a project which sees him drawing maps that combine history with hearsay in the most hilarious fashion.

One of the many chapters of this alternative atlas, entitled Tearing Europe Apart, examines the many cultural divides that seem to govern the continent. If you can swallow your pride and have a laugh at yourself (as well as your neighbors), scroll down to see which side of the dotted line your country falls on, and let us know in the comments if you agree with the author.

Potatoes are an underground crop and can take colder weather. Tomatoes depend on warmer weather.

Not totally accurate, but Western Europe was wealthier than Eastern Europe, so they could afford to hire someone come in and fix their plumbing. Eastern Europe has to depend on themselves, or they were in trouble. ;

Euhm, Flanders (north of Belgium) really is Catholic. Maybe a dozen of protestants to be found and those are immigrants.
