To properly live, breathe and experience history – that is the goal of the „Iron Curtain Trail”. From the Barents Sea to the Black Sea, this guide takes you along the Western border of the former Warsaw Pact countries, all the way across Europe. The route does not just connect European culture, history and sustainable tourism but it also provides historically-interested cyclists with some spectacularly beautiful and varied landscapes and unique habitats that were able to emerge in the former border strip, which is today the European Green Belt. The maps in the revised edition are more accurately scaled at 1:85,000. This volume describes the 1,700-kilometre-long part of the route along the Baltic Sea Cycle Route from R?ga to Lübeck.
