European Union

The EU countries are: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France,Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

The dress code within the European Union varies. My favourite is old Victorian formalwear from England, I love how these dresses are tailored to create a completely elegant and royal appearance. In comparison to the other countries within the European Union, I think the British clothes are much less colourful, but they look more expensive and classy. I love the colours within a lot of these garments, this pairs perfectly with the floral embroidery and patterns that are paired with these colours. I have noticed the use of white and black is used quite regularly throughout the colourful outfits, it looks really interesting, almost provides a breather that breaks up the bright colours apart, creating the perfect balance.

Art within the European Union is mainly focused around painting and sculptures, all of which have a very elegant air about them. Particularly within France and England, the painting is very realistic yet peaceful and beautiful, even if the scenery within holds battle and gore, many of the colours are muted and deep. There are also many interesting ways of creating scenery such as mosaics.

Some of the architecture in the European Union is purely beautiful. In my opinion Cathedrals and Churches are the best example of this, alongside Middle Eastern Temples and Asian Temples, they are one of my favourite structures in the entire world.  Most of the European structures I come across are very boxy – they don’t usually contain many other types of shapes, brick and wood being the primary material used.
