First Sentence
The easiest way to get to Croatia is by air, though fares from outside Europe can be expensive; a cheaper option may be to pick up a flight to a city outside Croatia (such as Trieste or Venice in Italy, Salzburg or Graz in Austria) and continue by train or bus. Read the first page

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Neal Stride on 24 July 2011
Format: Paperback
We needed a concise, realistic guide, reliably covering the basics for a first-time visit to Croatia, not least an indication of where to eat and what to look for during a couple of weeks that we knew would fly by. My wife and I have just returned from one of our best holidays ever in the country, helped in no small way by Jonathan Bousfield's guide. We weren't alone! Fellow diners at a family run restaurant tucked away up a back alley in Hvar Town had also found the place using the guide. But this isn't merely a foodie book. There are brief sections describing Croatia from prehistory to the political present - which is a model of clarity - Croatian folk music, an interesting 'History of Croatia in ten albums'and a basic glossary with useful phrases. This isn't a phrase book and doesn't pretend to be, but unless you're a linguist you'll be happy with the usual courtesies which are listed.

The country is dealt with in six main regional blocks: Zagreb, Inland Croatia, Istria, The Kvarner Gulf, Dalmatia, and 'Dubrovnik and around'. Each has a descriptive section with additional notes on accommodation, travel, restaurants, cultural life, night life, shopping, etc. and useful maps. All good stuff. Recommended. And it won't take up too much precious space in a backpack or shoulder bag.

Format: Paperback
This is a basic guide, but it served its purpose. We chose it after reading other reviews... very light on info regarding travelling with small children. But we muddled through. Tip - if you fly from Split airport, stay night in Trogir.. closer than Split to airport and very pretty.

Format: Paperback
This book was very useful when visiting Dubrovnik and some of the croatian islands this summer, great tips for hotels, resturants and transport, honest reviews of where to visit and more importantly where to avoid.
Good section on language, great insight into some of Croatia's history and provided excellent knowledge on the sights, museums, churches etc

The travel guide is well written and contains surprisingly high level of detailed information, not necessarily on the most famous places, but also on these less visited by must-to-see-crowds. Certainly, it was extremely helpful in Dalmatia. Only the very basic phrasebook could be expanded with some additional more often used phrases and words.

Once again, the Rough Guide has excelled itself. We just tourned Croatia for 2 weeks using this book as our guide. Everything about it is spot on and we used it for accommodation and restaurants as well as places to stop and visit.

Good guide although it would be useful to have access to individual guides e.g. Istrian penninsula. We stayed in Medulin, near Pula, which wasn't covered by the guide.

Nothing spectacular in this guidebook but well serves its purpose. Fresh from spring 2010 so all the details were still valid. Recommended nonetheless.

I found the format of this rough guide quite hard-going, and am definitely more of a fan of the lonely planet guides, which seem to give more options of places to eat/stay on a tighter budget. Wouldn't get another rough guide having used this one.
