Customer Review

on 6 April 2014
This guidebook covers all of the former Yugoslavia plus Albania, Bulgaria, Romania, Greece and Turkey. It is useful for a quick overview of the highlights of each country, but you shouldn't expect too much meat on the bones. It is generally poor for accommodation options outside the main tourist centres as everything is too condensed due to the number of countries it covers. Also, do bear in mind that this is one of the new-style Lonely Planets that incorporates useless maps too. However, the publication is great as a supplement to older Lonely Planet guidebooks that I already have on the Western Balkans, Greece, Bulgaria and Romania and the Bradt Guide to Albania. Also, it is very useful for backpackers who want to take as few books as possible with them. In this area of the world, the cheapest accommodation is often in private rooms. Lonely Planet never lists those, although it often mentions their existence.
