Wild East is the travel blog for Eastern Europe

We are Peter Althaus and Markus Bingel – like our guest authors, we have a big heart for Eastern Europe. For many people, the countries of Eastern, Central Eastern, North Eastern or South Eastern Europe are simply the “Wild East” – vast landscapes about which we know as much as we used to know about the “Wild West”. There are breathtaking metropolises from Berlin to Baku and Tallinn to Tirana, the mountains of the Balkans and the Carpathians, the wild steppes of Ukraine, the beaches of the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea. And above all, lots of friendly people and their culture. We would like to present all of this here and invite you to get to know Eastern Europe and its people. Come along and start your journey to the Wild East! More about us can be found
