Expedition to the Edge of the World

Once upon a time, a sea journey was one of the most hazardous adventures. Seafarers cautiously followed the coastlines, as they might easily lose their bearings on the open sea. Fear accompanied them wherever they sailed – the fear of plunging over the edge of the world. Courageous men like Columbus and Magellan dared to sail far out across the ocean and thus proved that the Earth is not a disk, but a sphere. Join the voyage to the limit in expedition to the edge of the world!
