Where? Où?

This is a French
detailed map of the European rail network published approximately in 1875. The borders of the European countries are shown as they were before the Congress of Berlin (June-July 1878) but some later railways are marked by simple black lines, like the Simplon tunnel (1906). This map was made by the geographers A.T. Chartier and Th. Gobert and engraved by E. Kollmann.
Europe Rails
The Czech Republic is a country of tales and legends. Everywhere, one can see Art Nouveau sculptures and decorated houses. In the Europe Photos section, you will discover some pictures of Czechia, most of them being related to history.
Remember that Borivoj the Ploughman was the first Duke of Bohemia and that the country was evangelized by Cyril and Methodius (9th cent.), the missionaries coming from Thessaloniki.
