It serves not only practical information about the city, its also full of historical facts and stories.

Originally published as an album, the book is rich with images - historical sketches as well as modern pictures.Cusco is a must-see for all those who want to explore the precolumbian civilizations of South America. Cusco is also the most popular gateway to Machu Piccu and it is almost as breathtaking as the ancient ruins.Peter Frost, a well-known researcher of the Andes and the author of “Exploring Cusco” in conversation with Roman Warszewski in May 2011 in Cusco:At the turn of 15th and 16th century, the Inca created an empire close in its dimensions to the Roman Empire.

It stretched out from the southern frontiers of today’s Colombia to present day central Chile and northern Argentina. On the west its natural border was the Pacific Ocean, on the east – the impenetrable Amazon wilderness. Like the Romans, the Inca constructed excellent roads, monumental, breath-taking buildings, they had a large, well-organised army and they were able to splendidly apply the achievements of the civilisations they conquered. Undeniably it may be stated that they were the Romans of South America, and that Cusco – the capital of Tawantinsuyu – was their Rome.
