Anyone planning a trip to Western Europe should take along a copy of this guide. It provides critical information about kosher restaurants, hotels, groceries, bakeries, Chabad Houses and Jewish Community Centers. Each country has a brief outline of its Jewish history-going back to Roman times, the Middle Ages, the Holocaust and the present. There are listings of Jewish museums, Jewish historic sites, Holocaust memorials, synagogues and mikvehs. The guide contains Sabbath Candlelighting Schedules and intercity railroad timetables. There are also hundreds of general sites such as the world-class museums (the Louvre, the Prado and the Rijksmusem), historic landmarks (Eiffel Tower, the Roman Forum, Tivoli Gardens and the Blarney Stone), and elegant castles (Palace of Versailles, Buckingham Palace, Mad Ludwig's Castle).
