About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Pratt, Michael, Trumler, Gerhard

From Library Journal:

Impeccably designed and lavishly illustrated, this volume allows us to wander into a part of the European heartland hitherto closed off to all but the most adventurous. Here we encounter chateaux, mansions, and castles that in size and splendor rival their counterparts in western Europe. Lord Pratt, an independent scholar, provides a historical introduction to each of the three countries of the region. He focuses primarily on the families that built and maintained these regal dwellings, with updates regarding their fate since World War II and their uncertain future after the fall of communism. Family photographs of the late 19th and early 20th centuries are included, as are four outstanding maps. The copious detail may be more than some readers wish to absorb, but Trumler's photographs of these national treasures unfailingly surprise and satisfy. There is an extensive index and a useful pronunciation guide. Highly recommended as a visual delight and an unusual introduction to a newly opened region.
