**Description**:

This textbook on elementary topology contains a detailed introduction to general topology and an introduction to algebraic topology via its most classical and elementary segment centered at the notions of fundamental group and covering space. With almost no prerequisites (except real numbers), the book can serve as a text for a course on general and beginning algebraic topology.
