It explores the ancient glories of Athens and Rome, where Western civilization was born, exciting global metropolises like Paris and Moscow, and the smaller capitals such as Stockholm, Riga, Dublin or Sofia - known for their fi ne architecture, rich culture or urban style. It also travels to places like Bratislava and Ljubljana, the capitals of recently independent countries, as they proudly embrace their new roles. Lavishly illustrated, this book celebrates each of Europe's capitals, from Amsterdam to Zagreb; a gazetteer provides fascinating facts and essential information. All 48 European capitals with over 500 stunning images by leading photographers. Also includes a special gazetteer section with interesting facts and figures.
