Wherever possible, Insight Guides use local experts who provide insider know-how and share their love and knowledge of the destination.
Insight Guide Croatia is a comprehensive full-colour guide to the culture, history and people of this newest member of the European Union. Our inspirational Best Of Croatia section illustrates the country's highlights, from the lavender-growing plains of Hvar to the waterfalls in Plitvice Lakes National Park, the Roman emperor Diocletian's palace in Split to the coffee houses of Zagreb - making sure you don't miss anything. Our unrivalled coverage of history, natural environment and culture provides an essential introduction to Croatia's rich heritage and contemporary life, to complement the in-depth coverage of the arts, activities and modern culture. The informative text, updated by an expert Croatia author, is packed with stunning new photography that brings to life Croatia's turquoise seas, fishing ports and Roman, Byzantium, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. With increased coverage of Zadar, Sibenik, Split, Dubrovnik and islands, this new edition is incredibly user-friendly. Descriptive region-by-region accounts cover the whole country from inland eastern Croatia to the coast stretching from Istria in the north to the beautiful city of Dubrovnik in the south. All major sights are cross-referenced with the maps, and the travel tips section provides a wealth of practical information on how to plan your trip, as well as our carefully selected hotel and restaurant listings.
