Summary
  • "A record-breaking journey through Europe. Europe is a popular destination for tourists from all over the world. Art and culture, historical cities and modern buildings, pulsating metropolises and untouched nature -- all of this and more is waiting to be discovered. But alongside the classic sights, the continent also has a whole host of exceptional things on offer. This book takes you to 111 extreme places that are unique within Europe, each holding a very specific record. Climb aboard the fastest rollercoaster, wrap up warm for the coldest music festival, where the instruments played are made of ice, and fasten your seatbelt for landing on Europe's only airport on a beach. From bizarre architecture via spectacular landscapes to surprising cultural phenomena: this book brings together places and superlatives that you will never have heard of before. Or did you already know that there's a Buddhist region in Europe called Kalmykia? That the farthest leaning tower in Europe isn't in Pisa but rather a small village in East Frisia, Germany? Or that children on La Gomera still learn an old whistling language at school? Europe from its most extreme side -- an alternative travel guide, both informative and entertaining. For avid travellers, fan of Europe and anyone who likes to show off with unusual pub quiz trivia. Full of guaranteed record breakers! The book that accompanies the award-winning series Europe to the Maxx from Deutsche Welle's lifestyle and culture magazine "Euromaxx". All of the films in the series can be retrieved via QR codes in the book"--book jacket flap
