Our series of city guides, titled “The 500 Hidden Secrets”, by real locals summarise the city in 100 lists of 5 addresses or facts, relating to food and drink, accommodation, shopping and culture. The authors always try to go off the beaten track, selecting lesser known places, which have yet to be found by the tourist hordes. In some cases, they also suggest places and facts that many of the locals in the city were not even aware of.

To date we have published 16 guides that are regularly updated. This website features a nice cross-section of each of our guides. Please note that all the addresses in our guides and on this website have been personally selected by the authors themselves. We do not publish anything in exchange for financial or other compensation.

You can buy our guides around the world, from a qualitative selection of bookshops, concept stores, museum shops and other retailers. You can also order our books through this website. We dispatch orders daily. For more information about shipping, check this page.
