A handy map for the travelling vegetarian

Vegetarians and vegans know that travelling in Europe can be tricky if you want to eat anything other than salad leaves or plain potatoes. Not every European nation is what you’d call “vegetarian friendly”. So it’s great to see that master map-maker Jakub Marian has updated his Map of “vegetarian friendliness” (number of vegetarian restaurants) in Europe by country!


  • Excellent result for the Czech Republic with 13.7 just one tenth of a point behind its neighbor Austria on 13.8 …and we run some great food tours in Prague btw! #JustSaying 😉
  • Tiny Andorra holding a great 12.6 – next door, France is a slightly more meaty 2.7!
  • If you’re a (the?) vegetarian in Bosnia and Herzogovina (0.3 – the lowest score of all) we’d love to hear from you. What’s it like?
  • Can you spot the winner with 24.8? Perhaps surprising for a nation founded by Vikings…
