The best photos of Europe that National Geographic has taken in its 125-year history

a symbol of Western democracy for more than 2,500 years, the parthenon overlooks the latest generation of tourists to gaze upon its ruined magni cence. Sitting upon a convenient rock, Maria Tsakonakou of the greek chapter of the International YWCa reminds prospective emigrants to australia, who are seeking better jobs abroad, that wherever they go this will always remain their cultural birthright.

The magazine’s photographers, who are sometimes armed with up to nine different cameras and 500 rolls of film for a single assignment, have captured the world with tack-sharp images.

More than 200 photos from the past 125 years are featured in the new book “National Geographic: Around the World in 125 Years – Europe.”

“The ideal Geographic picture should command attention,” writes Photo Editor Franklin Fisher, who worked for the magazine in the 1920s.
