We know many faces of Hungary, Europe and the world. But let’s break away from the familiar. We will show you maps and images that can give you a new perspective on your view of the world. Check out our interesting and varied compilation.
Budapest instead of Seattle
Everyone has a basic knowledge of geography. However, the following map can put latitude into context. This map replaces the familiar European castles with cities in Europe and North Africa, and does so with the replaced city at the same latitude.
Thus, in Spain, Barcelona is replaced by Beijing, and in Italy, Palermo is replaced by San Francisco on the Sicilian peninsula. England’s capital, London, is replaced by Edmonton, while Yakutsk is replaced by Norway. In Hungary, no other city has been replaced. And the latitude of Seattle is almost the same as Budapest.
