Has any of you have some general observation from tourists from the same country, what they usually know about your country when they come and visit?
Sometimes I'm impressed by how some tourists from a certain country always know a lot about my place, while from some countries the opposite is observable.
Do you have any similar observations regarding your place?
So, don't take my list so accurate, as I might have met all the time the extremes, still after many people I have the following impression:
Brits - usually know the name of the country, the spelling of Budapest and otherwise have no idea where they are.
Dutch - surprisingly informed about Hungary most of the cases
Poles - visiting Hungary seem to know quite a lot about history, culture, habits, etc... Well I don't wonder
Swedes - spiced with their infamous naivity , almost all I met seemed to had been informed about some interesting facts about the country. It's also very interesting that nearly all of them was keen on religion and some stuff we never considered important about Hungary.
French - like Brits - no idea where they actually are.
Spanish - the same as above. [Note, once I met Basques. They were very different, rather inquiring. But that's only one case]
Americans - those visiting Hungary from overseas seem to be a bit more educated than the others above. But mostly are not that interested in the country as usually they are on round-trips in Europe.
Canadians - From Canada I never met anyone that uninformed either. And somehow quite many seemed to know a lot about Hungary in his/her certain interests. As if they were always some kind of "field-trip" visitors
Germans Rather educated than not.
Greeks - visiting Hungary seem to know a stuff or two about Hungary and especially its history.
Again, only my private observations
Anything similar over there?
