No, mundolore is a community uniting travellers from all over the world to share their travel stories and knowledge about their favourite places, and tips with fellow travellers. The mini travel guides contain information about sightseeing places such as architectural or historical facts, but also fun facts. All content is generated by the users focusing on aspects they deem interesting or important without any claim of completeness. Content published by any user may include emotions, judgments, and personal stories.

Public mini guides are shown in our mundolore public library so that other users can read, bookmark, like, etc. your mini guide. The visibility of a private mini guide is limited to you. When should/can I use private guides? For example, if you haven’t finished a mini guide yet, and want to save a draft version or if you want to add private notes that are not meant for the public to see. The amount of private guides is limited, as the mundolore philosophy is to be an open travel community. However, if you wish the option to create more private guides, we will release a premium version for a small fee in the near future.
