Old World Maps



Never wondered how world used to look like in the eyes of our ancestors?

All these beautifully stilished and colored maps are not the proof of forgotten days, but the beginning of questions and discoveries. Some of them were made before Columbus findings, and belong to the 15th century and before. The others are made after that time and are pretty close to the ones we have today.
