I bought a copy of Rough Guide to Croatia and then got frustrated with its lack of information on transportation and purchased a Lonely Planet Croatia book as well. Both turned out to be good for different things. The Lonely Planet book lacked some key maps including one of Plitvice National Park and Borik, the area near Zadar where most tourists stay. I have no idea how we would have found our hotel in Zadar (reviewed in both books) without the Rough Guide because Lonely Planet was no help.

I think the authors of both books are still learning about Croatia because they occasionally lacked information about places that the other had. Just not up to snuff like the Lonely Planets I've used to travel around Latin America.

Although Lonely Planet guides are helpful and I keep buying them for all my travels, more and more I find that the information about what to see in some cities does not go beyond the obvious. Even worse, it becomes an art to know what really deserves the visit since sometimes the comments are far too much on the positive side. But with this Croatia guide I had an additional problem that did not occur before. When we used the guide to choose the eating places, maybe the most difficult task without a guide, generally we were very disappointed. So I just stopped using it and things worked better. In summary, I do not recommend the guide.

Love these Lonely Planet Guides. They do a pretty good job of showing you where and what to do/go. They have some pretty cool did-ya-know tidbit facts inside and I did love how they broke down each individual area. There were a couple of towns that were not even in the book, but overall it helped us out immensely.

The book gives a lot of details and is well organised - not like "The Rough Guide" giving pieces information. This one is much more comprehensive and easier to read / find the information you need. Maps in Lonely planet is also better.

I'm a real lonely planet fan, but this guide has been really desapointing. I spent 2 weeks in croatia, mainly on two islands, and i could hardly find any useful infos in this guide. It has about 20 maps less than in the previous edition...

I've visited 44 countries, mostly on a budget, and Lonely Planet is THE only book I would consider using. It's throrough, comprehensive and concise. It's especially geared for the budget/adventure traveler, though it would also prove useful to anyone on a tour or cruise. Lonely Planet is packed with maps, useful phrases, history lessons, tips on culture & conduct, addresses and descriptions of museums, hotels, restaurants - everything you need. Though Lonely Planet leans towards those of us who travel in hostels and budget hotels, it also gives a good description of hotels and restaurants for those who wish to travel in a more luxurious manner. There are other good travel books out there - Eyewitness Guides, etc - that have a lot of beautiful photos - but unless you're traveling with a steamer trunk, these are of little use because they lack the information you'll need while on the road. Look at the others for inspiration before you go, if you'd like, but pack your Lonely Planet. I'd never travel without it.

This guide is a waste of time and money. I didn't buy Rick Steve's guide because his pictures are black and white, so looking at the "look inside" of Loonely Planet I was misled to think it would have great pictures, history and traditions. However, this is just a listing of recommendations for hotel, restaurants, etc. which anybody could get for free from the tourism office. I Hate this guide!

An excellent manner to discover Croatia. Extremely informative, complete, with the most important information needed for those that are going to the different regions of Croatia, from the countryside to the most beautiful beatches of europe. A must read!
