Europe by rail: The definitive guide
Nicky Gardner & Susanne Kries Hidden Europe Publications Published: November 2017 Price: £15.95
Thisis the 15th edition of
Europe by rail, and for over two decades this delightful guide has helped to shape the travel plans of those exploring Europe by train.
This fascinating book sets out 50 key rail routes which capture the best that Europe has to offer. There are also tips on ticketing, fares, route choices and accommodation for planning your journey by train across Europe. In the latest edition new routes have been included that highlight the rich destinations that await the inquisitive traveller.
In tune with the destination as well as the journey, the authors also take the trouble to tweak past routes to reflect current anniversaries. For example, as this edition of the book was published on the centenary of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution, they have extended route 30 which roughly follows Lenin’s route back to Petrograd, to include St. Petersburg. They even recommend what to read on the journey!
This guide most certainly lives up to its name: it is a most definitive guide, and is packed with all the information that you will need to plan your rail travel across the continent. Do not leave home without it.
