Here are some new features in the Euratlas website
|1) Towns Pages in
the Physical Atlas
Now you can highlight a city from a list of 96 European
towns by clicking on its name and you will also have a direct access to
the Wikipedia entry and to the official website of the chosen city.
What's more, the modern population and the date of the first written
historical account of each city are given.

Regency of Algiers 1837
The Cartographies section presents a rare map of the Algerian
lands as they were in the years 1835-1837 during the conquest of
Algeria by France. This map is surprising because it shows, in pink,
the territories occupied by the French troops and, in ochre, the extent
of "Arab Algeria". Moreover, there are six cartouches with detail maps
of La Tafna, the Surroundings of Algiers, the Landing Zone at
Sidi-Ferruch, the City Map of Algiers, the Road from Algiers to Medea
and the Surroundings of Constantine.

of Poland 1752
Also in the Cartographies
section, we are proud to present a beautiful map of the Kingdom of
Poland in 1752 by Gilles and Didier Robert de Vaugondy. The Polish
State is shown with its traditional boundaries, including large parts
of modern Ukraine and Belarus, that is to say as it was before the
First Partition of the Kingdom.
