The series of "Architecture Guides" creates an access to the varying architectural spectrum of European capitals. Proven experts lead the reader through all the historical architectural eras from the beginnings to the present day. The chronological sequence and the high quality colour photos clearly reflect the typical characteristic of each metropolis. Instead of meticulous description of details the text are easy to read and provide an understanding of the building in its time and location. In addition to approximately 500 buildings, the most prominent architects and every era are introduced and portrayed. Several route suggestions provide direction to the interested city wanderer of Berlin, Paris and forthcoming Vienna.
