A great guidebook full of illustrations with great details on the highlights for each city/town which helps me easily to visualize everything there.

Eyewithess Travel Guides give the best overall overview of any travel book or other product on the market - good organization; great pictures, maps and other graphics; interesting & and concise text about history, food, etc.; good suggestions for lodging and eating. This guide was very helpful to understand and enjoy the Czech & Sovak Republics but I also purchased the more detailed guide for Prague.

I was advised to purchase this book before a recent trip to the Czech Republic. I found it to be very informative and helpful. The book's format is convenient and accessible. Reflecting back on my trip ,I think it was very complete and accurate.
The illustrations are one of the book's strongest points. The text did a good job of presenting the country's history , as well as contemporary life there.

I ordered this book from Amazon so I could have it sooner ... it is not often in the bookstores. It was delivered promptly and in great condition. DK travel books are wonderful - not only are the photos colored, the writeups are very descriptive, and touring sights have current Open/Close times which enables one to plan even better for a trip. My cousin and I do not do organized tours, so we travel all over Europe in a rental car with our photocopied pages of the DK books (carrying each country's book gets a little heavy) and these pages fit nicely in our carry-on luggage ... next to our maps.

The main problem I had with this guidebook was certain pages were in German, and I didn't realize it until I was already on my trip. Of course the German pages were the ones I needed, like hotel information or location descriptions. If you buy the book, CHECK THE PAGES! (Check pages 337, 344-345, 348, 352-353, 356-357, etc)

As for the parts that were in English: this is a very different type of guidebook than I am used to. It lists the most common sites to visit in an area, and goes into great detail about what to see (photos, drawings, maps) for one or two important sites. However, there is almost no practical information, such as prices for admission. There are overall maps of the countries, and regional maps, but quite a few of the major roads on the maps in the guidebook did not correspond to the roads on a roadmap I had for each country (the roadmaps were more accurate). I got the impression the maps in the book were drawn to look pretty, not for accuracy. The printing looks nice, but the book is very heavy--not recommended for a backpacker or someone trying to pack light.

If it weren't for the pages in German, I would recommend this book for someone who wanted background information on sites to see in a country, but I would not recommend it as a guidebook to take along on a trip.

P.S. I ordered this book directly from Amazon. When I realized it was defective, it was after the standard 30-day return period, but Amazon was very helpful and gave me a full refund without any hassle.

I bought this because I am considering going to Slovakia in the near future, my Grandparent are from there and I would love to see where they are from. This book has everything, wonderful pictures, maps, perfect directions, and so much more, plus it will fit in my purse as a reference. I cant wait.

Format: Paperback
This is the most thorough book on the small towns outside the large cities of these two countries. I found a lot of details that were helpful in planning my routing to see things of interest to me.

The book begins with general areas of interest and where to go to see them: landscape and wildlife, architecture, music, decorative arts, and literature. Highlights for each month of the year will help you choose when to go. The history section is quite good. The countries are divided into regions and then each city has a description and many include maps, photos, cross-sections of buildings, and suggested walking tours.

In the back you will find an abbreviated list of hotels and restaurants. It will give you an idea of price ranges but I would look to Lonely Planet for inexpensive places and Fodor's for those who travel first class. DK Eyewitness has the best overall book and I would make decisions on where to go based on the descriptions. Then I would consult Lonely Planet if you are using buses and trains.

This is the book one takes if they have space and are traveling through a country, through small towns. It will give you the main attractions and a brief history of even the smallest village. Also an excellent resource in planning a trip. The accodations and dinning suggestions I never follow.
