Watch 1000 years of European borders change…

40

This Video shows you a (rough) history of changing European borders. It’s a thousand-year time lapse map. While it includes the Soviet Union (Russia) and the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) the timeline is off across several areas; e.g. the partitioning of Poland, the Habsburg monarchy, the Balkan Wars, the start of WWI, and the formation of Yugoslavia, which happened at the end of WWII recorded here as occurring in 1959. But it’s a good effort and rather interesting. It makes me wonder what Europe and the USA will look like in another thousand years!
