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.

Alcoholic beverages come from crops that grow in that part of Europe: grapes in the south; barley in the middle, and potatoes in the north. It all depends on availability. ;D

NORWAY, depressed?! Uh, I beg to differ - it was recently stated to be one of the happiest countries in the world. This one is way off.

Most of the "Poor" countries are former Communist countries. Communism is guaranteed to create poverty.
