This quirky time lapse shows how Europe‘s borders have expanded, contracted, and expanded again. We’re pretty sure the original intent was to help those studying for a World Geography test or the like, but it’s a fun tool for travelers too – is the area you’re visiting this summer a part of the original Hapsburg empire? Has the hotel you’re staying in always been in France? Watch it. We’re sure you’ll enjoy.
