About this book

This new edition of Bradt’s Croatia is thoroughly updated to reflect recent changes, especially since Croatia’s accession to the EU in 2013. Bradt’s Croatia offers the most detailed coverage of all the guides of the coast and islands, as well as the capital Zagreb and areas further inland. New for this edition are: more details of Slavonia, new accommodation options in all price brackets, new restaurants, plus new features on Croatian wines and Game of Thrones locations and tours in Dubrovnik. Sitting at the cross-roads of Europe, Croatia offers an unrivalled mix of culture and nature. It continues to seduce visitors with its beautifully preserved historic towns and cities, magnificent cultural sights, gorgeous coastline, outstanding national parks and delicious food-not to mention some of the clearest waters you are likely to find anywhere in the Mediterranean.
