This Map Shows The Most Popular Foods in Europe

| © Alex Picerne / Culture Trip

Visiting Europe on Hungerlust? Well, guess what! We’ve put together this handy little piece of cartography, which maps out the most popular foods (you have to try, of course) when visiting the ‘old world’.

Quick, find Belarus on our food map! Can’t find it? Let’s try something easier then. Albania. No, still can’t find it. OK, name the country that is obsessed with fish and chips. Ah, the UK. See, much easier. Why? Well because Google says so.

Whilst many people in England would say a good old-fashioned roast beats fish and chips hands down (it’s honestly a hotly debated feature of the constitution), the world of the search engine disagrees.

To put this colourful map together, we scoured all sorts of google auto-complete results in every European country to feed your hunger-fuelled curiosity.

Whilst some of the usual suspects pop up (shout outs to fish and chips in the UK and Pizza in Italy), some are a little bit more obscure.

There’s Poland’s Pierogi, a lovely, pocket-filled dough dish. Belarus’s mochanka, a traditional beef stew (just like mamma used to make). And finally there’s Knedlicky, the Czech Republic’s answer to the most scrumptious dumplings.

Time for a spot of culinary travel wethinks.

Volcanic Iceland Epic Trip

meet our Local Insider

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!

Connect with like-minded people on our premium trips curated by local insiders and with care for the world

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.

Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.

We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
