Each DEFINE FINE book takes the reader on a unique journey with its authors

The first series takes in the cities of Amsterdam, Barcelona, Rome, Stockholm, Moscow and St Petersburg, and then on to Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City, Buenos Aires, Sydney and Melbourne. Each DEFINE FINE book takes the reader on a unique journey with its authors through a personal and independent selection of hand-picked places, with local people’s insider tips across each city. The concept is not only re-defining luxury travel, but also re-defining luxury as a concept and experience for each traveller to immerse themselves in and learn.

“In our journeys, we are looking for the soul of the cities we visit,” Nikola Kostic told Essential Journeys. “We listen to the drums of each city’s heartbeat, to the flutes of its streets and we hear the symphony that each city is playing. The places we choose are essential instruments in this orchestra.”

The books are available to order online at with an RRP of £20
