Exploring cultures and communities – the slow way

A look ahead at hidden europe 31 to be published in mid-July

article summary —

The Adriatic city of Trieste will feature in the next issue of hidden europe, which will be published in mid-July. It is a curious place, a city where Italy and the Habsburg world collide. For a spell it was the foremost port of what was essentially an inland empire.

Trieste apart, we shall explore Dudley in the English Midlands and the Faroe Islands, the isolated North Atlantic archipelago that has a finely honed sense of national identity.

With fusion cuisine all the rage, why not fusion transport? A 1966 poster in Britain advertised ‘Get there sooner — take your car by rail’. We shall take a look at train services that transport both you and your car.

Our website has a wealth of material which you may enjoy. The new ‘Notes’ section has European travel news and current subscribers can access hidden europe back issues online.
