The Travel Accounts book collection

The Travel Accounts book collection consists of 2.500 editions written by various European travelers describing the Mediterranean area and Southeast Europe from the 16th to the 20th century.

These books, although possessing many elements of fantasy, are a valuable source of information for society, culture, geography, economy, religion and all aspects of daily life of the people that travelers met during their voyages. Moreover, since these books are accompanied by rich graphic material (photographs, engravings, drawings, etc.), they provide significant records of archaeological sites and monuments while composing the local history through the unique view of European travelers.
