Exploring cultures and communities – the slow way

A look ahead at hidden europe 37 which will be published on 16 July.

article summary —

The name is beautiful: La Serenissima Repubblica di San Marino. But what of the little republic and city-state in the shadow of Monte Titano on the Adriatic slopes of the Apennines? Oddly, San Marino has hardly had a mention in hidden europe, and that is a lacuna we shall address in our next issue.

hidden europe 37 will be published on Monday 16th July. It will also feature street art in Zagreb and slow trains through Flanders. And we shall mark the fortieth anniversary of an interesting innovation in travel. It was in spring 1972 that the first InterRail pass was launched. What started as a modest one-off initiative helped shape many young Europeans’ understanding of their home continent.
