Learn how these rival cities grew and flourished to become the European power-houses of the 19th and 20th centuries, their influence and leadership felt right across the main fields of human endeavour, from culture and science through to politics, militarism and warfare. These developments were fuelled by their countries’ tortuous and often conflicting paths from monarchy and empire to become republics. See how the legacy of this past lives on in the form of majestic buildings, world-famous art and classic literature.
