The European Cities Collection published by National Geographic Traveller is a curated selection of some of the most beautiful and historically significant cities in Europe. The collection features multiple cities, each with its unique blend of art, architecture, culture, and history. It was created by National Geographic to inspire travellers to explore and experience the rich cultural heritage of Europe. The lead to the newest issue reads: ‘One of the best ways to connect with a city is by exploring its outdoor spaces under your own steam.
In this issue, we set off on a series of urban adventures, including dipping into some of Europe’s best spots for city swimming, from Icelandic geothermal pools to the ponds at Hampstead Heath in London. We then pedal through some of the best metropolises to explore on two wheels, before setting off on hiking trips and walking tours around the continent’s best green spaces located in or around cities.‘
National Geographic has a long history of showcasing the beauty and diversity of different cultures and destinations around the world.
The European Cities Collection is just one of many projects that the organisation has undertaken to promote cultural awareness and travel.
The collection features stunning photography, detailed maps, and informative descriptions of each city’s history and culture. It also provides practical information on travel and accommodation, as well as tips on how to make the most of your visit.
The European Cities Collection is a valuable resource for anyone interested in exploring the rich cultural heritage of Europe. It provides a glimpse into the unique characteristics of each city and encourages travellers to discover the favourite destinations of their own.
