Welcome to the European folktales page!

Europe is the second smallest continent on Earth. The birthplace of western culture, Europe is a land with tremendous cultural and ethnic diversity.

The European folktales on this page are sorted based on the ethnolinguistic similarities of the peoples of Europe. This beautiful map shows the geographical spread of European languages. There are currently four language groups: the Celtic, the Germanic, the Romanic and the Slavic.
