On a trip which took us by train through nine countries, Subotica was a perfect overnight break on the final stretch of our journey from Belgrade back to Berlin. Enjoy our latest Letter from Europe. #travel #Subotica #Serbia #Europe
Within minutes of arriving in Subotica last week, we knew this was somewhere special. The town, which is close to the Hungarian frontier in northern Serbia, has a remarkable feast of art nouveau architecture and design. Indee...

Nicky Gardner, who is co-editor of hidden europe, is just back from a journey through Bohemia, Upper Austria and Bavaria during which Britain's recent referendum was never far from her mind. Here's our latest "Letter from Europe". #EuropeanUnion #UK #EURef #Brexit
For millions of Brits of my generation, the EU gave an exit route, a chance to escape. It gave me a chance to feel truly European, to be truly European. It has given me the opportunity to explore other languages, other faiths...

Today is the day! hidden europe 48 is published. One of the articles features the small town of Redu in southern Belgium. It's a great piece by Paul Scraton, editor-in-chief of 'Elsewhere - A Journal of Place'. #travel #magazine #Belgium
Tucked away in the hill country of southern Belgium is the town of Redu. On the face of it, Redu is much the same as other towns in the Ardennes region. Except that, in Redu, the printed word is especially cherished and valued. Paul Scraton invites us to join him as he explores Belgium's premier 'book town'.

We have never really thought much about job titles. But William Faden had an enviable job title. He was 'geographer to the King' - the monarch in this case being George III of England. If you are going to be a geographer, job titles don't come any grander than that. And more than 200 years on, his 1812 pilot guide to Spanish inshore waters is still a magnificent read. Enjoy our latest "Letter from Europe" which looks at the history of the island of Cabrera, off the south coast of Mallorca. #Spain #Cabrera #travel
In the summer of 1812, while Napoleon's Grande Armée was storming east towards Moscow, William Faden's publishing house in London was busy putting the finishing touches to a new guide to Spanish inshore waters. Among the area...

We visit the town of Ceské Budejovice in southern Bohemia in our latest "Letter from Europe". #CzechRepublic #Europe #Bohemia
Kings come and kings go, and even freedom goes in and out of fashion. But the appeal of the town square endures, because ultimately these are spaces that belong to the people. The square in Ceské Budejovice is no exception to...

They storm in, straight out of the Book of Revelation, and lay waste to the earth. Locusts! They do not make pleasant neighbours. Europe has been largely free of locusts in recent years – but not entirely.
