They are considered fashionable and french clothing brands are the most popular here

    Italians: The southern ones are considered all members of the mafia. Women are considered hot and sexy and the language erotic. They eat tons of pasta 10 times a day and also eat cats, horses and worms!!! Greeks like Italians in general and consider them "brothers" (una faccia una razza).

    Germans: People here consider them cold and completely unsexy. They are bad in bed without imagination. German women are considered ugly cause of their height and wide shoulders (bone structure in general). There is still the stereotype from WWII that all German female athletes look like men due to too much steroids. They are organized and respect the laws

    Dutch: They are constantly stoned and they only pay for sex.

    Scandinavians: They are admired for their high standard of living but they are considered lousy in bed. Men here say that Swedish girls are good looking but in bed they are cold as ice. Scandinavian women in general are considered lesbians and feminists and men are considered unable to please their women turning them to lesbians...

    Scotts: They are considered stingy and people call them "dagobert duck"

    English: Their food is awfull. Men are considered gay and women bad in bed

    Well in general all northern European women are considered bad/cold in bed by Greeks.

    Spanish: Greeks like spanish people in general and the only stereotype that comes to my mind at the moment is that both men and women are considered very sexy and good in bed.

    Eastern Europeans: Everybody is thought to be communist. They all have round faces and washed-out - "lifeless" hair colors. Russians are considered good with computers (hacking, cracking etc) and all russian sites will infect your computer with viruses/worms etc. :P
    So English men are, 'considered gay' are they? That is a bit rich coming from a Greek. Incidentally, sodomy is often referred to as 'Greek' in Britain.

    Country: Spain



    In Spain usually not too often stereotype others by their nationality and especially in Andalusia is very difficult to talk bad or criticize someone from another region of Spain or another country, it is easier to hear criticism in Catalonia from other Spanish or Europeans do not know what it is, but it is.

    We know our historic failures and missed the train, the fact of being a country as rich as other Europeans long ago that critics are in the same direction, but we know the stereotypes that other Europeans think of us and makes us laugh, by ignorance.

    Anyway Europeans who speak Spanish are more: English, French, Italian, German, Swedish

    English: Violent, drunk and rowdy revelers.

    French: Stakeholders, unsupportive, chauvinists, do not use soap are poured perfume, moody.

    Germany: Men are heads blocks and German women are very good. Drink lots of beer. Is nice in general.

    Sweden: Swedish men do not exist, only Swedish women.

    Italian: The Spanish believe they fully understand the Italian language. Other stereotypes are related to Italian food.

    Portuguese: Oh! are poor.

    For ordinary people the rest of Europe is largely unknown or does not maintain a modern topical tradition, as they are now known to be due to immigration, as may be the case in Romania, it is better not express what word on the street.

Bad food, bad teeth and drink nothing but tea. Abroad are loud, obnoxious and just why can't all these foreigners speak english?

    The Scots
    Misers. Miserable and have never forgiven the English for the defeats they have inflicted on them in most of the battles. Strong willed and the Highland scots hate the lowland scots and visa versa. Alawys wear kilts and eat haggis.

    The Irish
    Not very bright. Jolly and drunk. Like fighting. All of Ireland is nothing but small villages like Ballykissangel. Land of potatoes and whiskey

    The French
    Arrogant. Hate anyone who isn't french, especially the english. Hate anyone who doesn't speak french, it is, after all, a langauge of culture. Lovers and have good food, as long as you like garlic. All men in France smoke bad cigarettes, wear striped t-shirts and ride old bicycles with oinions around ther necks. Hate Parisians, but then again the Parisians hate the rest of France. Eat frogs legs and drink huge amounts of wine. Have no idea what soap is.

    The Italians
    Better known than the french for surrendering at the slightest sound of a gun. Hot headed lovers and knife wielding maniacs all out for vengence if you insult them, their family, cousins, towns, neighbours goat. Drive like lunatics in old Fiat 500s. Also known for being stylish in the cities, but the people in villages all dress like they have dropped out of the 19th century. eat nothing put pasta and tomatoes.

    The Spanish
    Laid back and always asleep during the afternoon. Never rush at anything. Like nothing better than finding an innocent animal and finding a novel way of killing it do not know what a car is really for and which side of the road to drive on.

    The Swiss
    Chocolate, cuckoo clocks and most of the world money. Most boring country in Europe.

    The Germans
    Do not know what a sense of humour is, even the langauge sounds grumpy and unfunny. A habit of starting landwars in Europe. Like order and will not deviate from instructions. Tidy, neat, obsessive, in other words a country of anal retentives. Make good efficient cars with no soul. have no speed limit on the autobahns. Food is something to be desired consisting of nothing but sausages and pickled cabbage. Like beer, huge quanties of it.

    The Dutch
    Most relaxed country in Europe as they are all stoned. Known for sticking fingers in holes in dykes.

    Miserable I'll grant you; we are possibly the only people to make the Swedes look like a barrel of laughs. But it's hardly because of the defeats inflicted upon us by the English, since we won almost as many battles as we lost. And that includes the most important single battle in Scotland and Englands shared history - Bannockburn. After the 23rd and 24th of June 1314, no English monarch ever again attempted to conquer Scotland.

    Yes, we lost several important battles after that, including Flodden. And Cromwell kicked seven shades of crap out of us - but then, Cromwell kicked everyone's ass.

    History has proved that my people do two things very well indeed: invent things and kill large number of their fellow human beings. There is a joke that goes, "The Terror Threat Alert in Scotland has been raised from Pissed Off to Kill The Bastards! The Scots don't have any other Threat Levels, which is one reason why they have served on the front line of every war the British have fought for centuries."

    I wouldn't crow too much about the relative absence of English military interventions post-1314. There are other ways of conquering that don't involve military violence. The Tories, surely an English political party and nothing else, rode roughshod over Scotland for years, even daring to use the Scots as Guinea Pigs for the Poll Tax idea. 'No-one touches me with impunity'.... an Englishwoman called Margaret Thatcher did!

    This is so funny!!! I only recently learnt in Art History that the French never bathed themselves until after 1850, so every two months they needed to all move out of the palace and cleaned up. And yet they already had clean water running through for those lovely fountains, but in the beautiful “Versailles” there were no signs of constructions of the toilet or the bathroom! They were afraid to contract some sort of disease from the water, and they used perfume instead!

    It is true the French don't make effort to understand English; my French professor thought that Scottish, Irish and English were all the same! I was the one who corrected her, she didn't even take my word for it, she had to confirm it with the Irish dude in my class, because "All Chinese people come from China" no wait she thought I was Japanese!

    They are loud, like Southern Italians and Portugese!

    I think they are xenophobic

    They love their heavy foods, and are fairly cold but not xenophobic, I think you need to know them pretty well to be considered as their friends, and otherwise you are just an acquaintance to them!

    The Dutch
    Most relaxed country in Europe as they are all stoned. Known for sticking fingers in holes in dykes.
    I think they are way too obsessed with the ideal of freedom, and way too proud of it! My international relations professor said that too much freedom can be a threat to democracy especially when it is used in the wrong way!

    And I guess your professor is right.

    It is rather a american cliche than a Spanish one. Spanish peoples have been immigrants in France from 19th century to the 80's, so it was the contrary : they were suffering from racism, a lot of "native" French saying that they were uncivilized, filthy, non integrable, the upper-classes children had not the right to play with their ones...

    With the american way of life, their jokes about France have become now almost international.

    It wasn't merely xenophobia. Your country treated the spanish republicans like garbage in concentration camps created by the french goverment... they were treated worst than criminals.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concent...amps_in_France

    All because France was afraid of Franco and his friend Hitler. This makes me recall another usual french stereotype: Cowardice.

    Greetings.

    Well, northern spain is way richer than south France. The french have always wanted to be like Germans or British, and have always regarded spaniards with disdain, even tough during history the spanish Empire the stereotype of French being COWARDS was known then.

    With the american way of life, their jokes about France have become now almost international.
    Given this and some other outrageous comments you have made, it is abundantly clear that you dislike Spaniards. How many other European ethnicities do you not like? I see something pathological here...

    More exactly, northern Spain has become now richer than some southern french regions. Thanks to European integration. Before the 80's, Spain was almost a thirld-world country.

    Not really. Basic germanophobia and anglophobia have not completely disappeared.

    I don't dislike anyone. My post was just about the facts that I have observed with the Spanish immigrants in France some years ago.

    Same with Ireland or Iceland. But Spain was not even part of the Marshall Plan, and had an autarchy during dictatorship.

    Not really. Basic germanophobia and anglophobia have not completely disappeared.
    It is well known the admiration and almost of worship of France towards the "popular guys" (germany and Britain) and disdain towards spaniards. Maybe a complex ?? Because the spanish empire 'owned' the French.

    Iceland is not in European Union. Are you sure to reside in Europe ?

    For Ireland, yes, and what does it change to the sense of my post ?
