About CityTalks

If these walls could talk …

The elements of a city – its buildings, streets, and public spaces – are witnesses to historical events. These events were game changers in politics and society and they introduced innovation in science and the arts. They made places and individuals famous, with monuments, stories, and songs passing this history to later generations.

CityTalks professional historians and travel guides have identified these events and described the stories of fascinating objects and places around the cities.

Thanks to the CityTalks mobile app you can now listen to professional guided audio records about the places you pass on your way home from work, or during your sightseeing walk.
