Old Lutsk Guide Books

Guide Book is a mandatory attribute of tourists main interest points. It can be a small booklet, which talks about museums or architectural monuments or a reference book dedicated to the city, region, or country.

The first guide books were created very early as in ancient Greece times and gave readers the opportunity to relive the impression of travelers who wrote them. In the first half of the 19th century, they were published. Their authors were John Murray, who began printing the Murray's Handbooks for Travelers in London in 1836 and Karl Baedeker, who had published a handbook for travelers "A Rhine Journey from Mainz to Cologne" in 1928. By the way Murray and Baedeker became "the parents" of the "star" system of evaluation for the sightseeing, accommodation facilities and food.

Today the guide book accompanies each city that has something to show and something to share. Lutsk is not lagging behind and last year The Center For Tourist Information and Services presented a modern Lutsk Сity Guide Book that pleased every tourist being informative and creative. But we are not the pioneers here. 

Therefore, we are presenting to you the old Lutsk guide books (although they can also be called a presentation booklet), which we found.

The first one is a booklet that was published in 1967 in Kiev. It's probably one of those books that is simply a pleasure to handle, given the age and dignity. The second one is a guide book, published in 1984 for the request of the governmental company "Intourist", which had a monopoly in the organization of foreign tourism in the USSR. It shows Lutsk to foreign tourists in French.
