Colonisation has been one of the most controversial events in the European history and this infographic made by Jakub Marian (Jakubmarian.com) shows the total number of colonies settled by European countries in the past.
Apart from the UK, which has been the European country with the highest number of colonies all over the world, many other countries had colonies including Belgium, Austria, Italy and Greece.
Did you know that also Denmark, Norway and Sweden had colonies?
Unfortunately, colonization created many problems that even today are not completely resolved.
What do you think the EU should do to solve this issue?
