Georgia, the country and not the American state, is a very nice, but threatened country of great historical importance. Bordered on the west by the Black Sea, on the north by Russia, and on the east by Azerbaijan, and with an ill-defined border with Turkey on the west, Georgians must be nimble to retain their independence. Only with neighbouring Armenia does Georgia enjoy relatively good relations. Historically, Georgia is a Christian enclave that dates back to the earliest days of Christianity, and its many churches are major touristic attraction. This map portrays the country as accurately as is possible, showing the expanding network of motorways, major churches, castles, touristic sites, and regrettably, areas of contention with both Russia and Azerbaijan. The reverse side shows a full-sized city map of Tbilisi, the capital. This is the first time that the city has been portrayed in such detail. Attractions include the Narikala Fortress, the cathedral, the old town centre, and the Dry Bridge Market (now a flea market, but in Soviet times a black market). The city lies beside the Kura River, in a valley enclosed by Mtatsminda Mountain, which has two cable cars to its summit, which is now a recreational theme park. The city's two metro lines are also a good way to travel around the city.
1:300,000/1:8,000 ITMB finds the UK to be a never-ending source of maps needing to be prepared, such as this one of Cardiff and Wales. Cardiff is the capital of Wales, and is also an international access point to the UK; a map seems desirable. The city is based at the mouth of the River Taff, with most touristic points being concentrated in the harbour area, the city centre, and a concentration of eateries along Albany Road. Cardiff is shaped by two parallel motorways; the A4232close to the waterfront, and the A48 near the northern extremities. Both are included in our map, which also shows historic sites, hotels, and tourist amenities. The reverse side shows all of Wales as an entity, showing roads, rail lines, ferry crossing points, and access routes to England. It also shows historic sites, tourist attractions, parks, airports, ferry terminals, and all the towns and villages. By the nature of the shape of Wales, adjacent portions of England also are included - Liverpool, Shrewsbury, Ludlow, and Hereford.

ITMB is pleased to announce the release of the final regional map covering Europe at an enhanced scale. Europe may be small in comparison to Canada, but it is densely populated and difficult to map as a continent while providing detail. Eastern Europe used to be defined as everything behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War, but now it encompasses everything east of Germany and Switzerland, which means that this map covers Italy, Greece and the Balkan countries, the Central European countries of Romania and Hungary and most of Ukraine, Poland and the three Baltic states, and western Russia as far east as Volgograd, as well as much of Turkey. It is a combined road and rail map, showing motorways and major highways, fast-train routes in red and regular services in black. It also shows major cruise line routes, although many have been suspended due to Covid and political situations in Russia and Turkey. Essentially, this is a map covering a very large area, as are our maps of Western and Central Europe, and our earlier map of Scandinavia. We have tried to make it politically correct, which is difficult considering the Russian occupation of Crimea and the Donetsk region of Ukraine and the on-going controversy over the 'proper' name for Macedonia, so we apologize for any errors. For simplicity's sake, we have named most place names in English, so Roma is Rome and Moscva is Moscow etc. Fortunately, most English place names are the same in the local languages. However, being ITMB, Naples is Napoli, and Florence is Firenze, so don't be too critical of us; we're trying to reconcile differing perspectives
Austria is both an ancient country and a modern country. It was a powerful empire prior to the French Revolution (Marie Antoinette was an Austrian princess prior to her marriage to the king of France), and WW1 was strongly influenced by the Austro-Hungarian empire. The aftermath of that war resulted in Austria becoming much diminished in power, but despite WW2, its borders remain much as they were in 1918. That said, today's Austria is a lovely and safe place to visit. 75 years of peaceful neutrality has restored the country to prosperity and the country is loaded with picturesque villages, lovely mountain scenes, historic castles and palaces, wonderful churches, and museums galore. This map emphasizes the rail network that is the best way to travel around the country, but also shows motorways and ordinary highways, parks, scenic attractions, and connections to surrounding countries.

The southern half of Spain (and of Portugal, which is also included) consists of the portion from Toledo/Castellon south to the Mediterranean. Side 1 (the cover side) focuses on the eastern portion, from Granada to the coast, including the Balearic islands of Mallorca, Menorca, and Ibiza, and the other side the portion of Spain west of Granada, including that portion of Portugal from north of Lisbon to the Algarve. Gibraltar is included, as are the Straits and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta and part of Tangier. A large inset of the seven Canary Islands is also shown. This map completes our regional mapping of Spain (the other two titles are Spain North and Cataluña/Barcelona). Spain has invested heavily in its train network, so we note both rapid train and regular train routes, as well as the expanding motorway network. Major touristic sites are noted, as always, with special attention to world heritage sites. The scale is excellent for those wanting to explore this portion of Spain at leisure.
