cultural differences between us and Europeans

Jump to last reply

I am planning on an extended visit to Europe next year. I like to understand the locals so I can get along better, not be surprised by anything, and not offend anyone.
In your travels, what things have you noticed in regards to customs, habits or general attitudes in these countries:

France
Germany
Italy
Croatia
Switzerland
Hungary

Thank you in advance.
