Europe is a continent, but unlike Australia, it isn't also a country. Europe is defined by the many regional cultures that inhabit the land. These cultures were shaped by history, geography, and the movement of groups of people. Some European cities and cultures are geared toward pluralism and take an open-minded approach to people from other lands, while other places are more secluded and do not know what to think of outsiders. Some European cities are very much a product of industries, sometimes even industries long since gone to seed, and successful or not, the culture of that industry works its way into the local culture.
With wildly different cultures and perspectives, every European city has a different view as to where the "center of the world" lies. Some of this might be due to seeing similarities between cultures, and thus having a feeling of kinship. Some might just have to do with geography, and how shared geographic similarities make one feel at home far from one's hometown. What's more, many nations around the world have a long relationship with a European nation, and perhaps even a shared language, giving the two a bond that doesn't exist for other lands. Thus, your answers to this quiz on world geography will allow us to guess what European city you live in. After all, the motto of the EU is "United in Diversity."
