For a book covering four countries, this is excellent value. I have used the older edition of this book for several budget weekends in the featured cities and I can honestly say it has been the only book I have taken with me!
It's in the usual style of the series, of course, which should appeal not just to budget travellers. There's just the right level of history and political background material as well.
In the same region, their new guide to the Baltic States looks interesting - I'm just waiting for some readers' reviews!

I've read about 10 travel books in my time, it may not seem much but it's enough to get the idea of what you can excpect out of a 'travel book series'. By far this is the best account of a country in a travel book I have read - and not only that you get 4 countries for the price of one (£15.99 in your local bookshop opposed to £15.99 each!). Not only is this guide good for travelling but it's good for if you want to just read up about a country that interests you. I bought this book soely for the Norway section but found the other (3) sections very interesting too, this really is a full acount of Scandinavia. Be warned though if you are excpecting to see Iceland (and Greenland) in this guide - well you wont, for some reason Iceland (and Greenland) seem to have been left out of the defenition of Scandinavia by 'Rough Guides'. However don't let that put you off, this truly is a good value, very interesting and all round good book!

As always with rough guides great ideas and huge detailed coverage, little bit dated but still useful.
An invaluable part of travelling, should be the first thing in the suitcase.

better for a second trip 29 July 2005
By C. Clay - Published on Amazon.com
this guide highlights the most essential sights for a tourist, but I think it is better on a second trip to Scandinavia when one already has an idea of the lay of the land. some other guides have better maps, but this guide doesn't waste time on sights that aren't essential. Like all titles in this series, it focuses on the best places to visit and isn't afraid to say something is a waste of your time. buy it as a supplement to another guide.
