AT MATADOR Network, we always encourage other travelers to visit museums (even the weirdest ones) and check out street art when they are abroad because we know that art is a window into a country’s culture.

This map of famous European artworks created by Reddit user halfabluesky is not going to please everyone (the choice for The Netherlands is already controversial in the comment section), but it is a great way for all of us to learn more about artists and artworks we would otherwise have never heard about — I personally did not know about anything about Icelandic art…now I do!

Because some of the artworks can be difficult to visualize on the map, the creator listed them. See below.
