Get to know the countries you are visiting before you set off
Europeans like nothing more than a visitor who tries to speak the language when visiting their country, even if it's really bad they will appreciate the effort. In the same way they also appreciate people who have taken the time to understand a bit about the country they are visiting.
So, in order to make this easier we're providing our visitors with European Country Guides. In each of these we're going to give you a guide to the country's history, politics, economics and geography. After reading them you'll probably know more than a lot of the locals you'll meet!
