Drawn by Croatia's dramatic landscape of rugged mountains, clear blue sea, and historic Venetian towns along the coast, the number of visitors to this fascinating Eastern European country continues to increase. Revised and redesigned, this new edition covers Zagreb and inland Croatia, Istria, Kvarner, and North, Central, and South Dalmatia. It provides practical information on where to stay, from hotels and pensions to "Robinson Crusoe" accommodations on uninhabited islands and newly restored lighthouses. Author Jane Foster, a resident of Croatia for more than five years, offers an insider's advice on sailing the Croatian coast -- the best way to see it -- with its beautiful bays and islands. She covers Croatian treasures such as Dubrovnik and Split, as well as the best beaches (including naturist spots) and water sports centers. 32 pages of full-color maps and evocative photographs help travelers navigate their way through the country and discover its best sights.
