No matter how open-minded you consider yourself to be, you will have some sort of preconception when it comes to other countries.

Thanks to Google, we can find out what those preconceptions are.

The infographic below, created by Exeter International, used Google auto suggest to find what people most commonly search for in conjuction with countries, showing us what each country is most famous for (or, at least, what people associate them with).

Interestingly, food and drink, sports and holidays are the most common themes.

However, apparently the US is known for its higher education, as "universities" was the top search term associated with the US, making it the only country within the education category.

While Russia and vodka seems like an obvious one, who knew that Latvia is known for its jokes? Or that Guyana seems to be home to a world famous sponge cake?

Keep scrolling to see what the rest of the world is famous for.
