The Travels of great people leave a mark on the places they visit. Swami Vivekananda travelled widely across the world. Many places left a deep impression on him, particularly Europe. His presence too evinced lot of interest among the Europeans which sowed the seeds for the furtherance of Indian thought there.
Distanced by time, we lost many building and sites which are no longer in the from they were in during Swami Vivekananda visit. This book is an attempt to trace his route across Europe and to find out the changes in the places that have taken place since then. The content of this book appeared as a series of articles in the English journal of the Ramakrishna Order, Prabuddha Bharata, intermittently from March 1967 to April 1977, and are a result of painstaking research by Swami Vidyatmananda.
These places have changed a lot since the publication of these articles However, this publication is being brought out in order to preserve the work that has been done already and so the details have been retained as it were in the original series. Written in the inimitable gripping style the author is know for this book could be an impetus for further research to bring to light the present condition of these places.
We are grateful to SNGT E Solution Pvt Ltd., Noida, who have done the indexing. Eare happy to publish this book during the celebrations of the 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.
