No matter if you visit my country the first or second time, one of Croatia guide books, are 'must have' to be updated with the latest information.
All books covers all aspects of Croatia and practical information about all areas of the country. It’s a great help for all types of travelers, young, solo or families. On the market you'll find a lot of books and maps all well written with stunning photos. But which one of the books to pick up?
You have to find a useful guidebook whether you are already in Croatia or you are planning to go. You need a book that gives you a practical advice in terms what to see and do, a short history, how to get there and around by bus, ferry, train or by car or where to sleep for cheap, what to eat and so on.
From my long experience as a travel guide you don't need any of these overpriced books, with beautiful color images but actually lacking of good content.
Today in the world of computers, tablets, smartphones, Kindle or other mobile devices you need a guidebook you can read and consult in any place and the moment when you need some essential information.
I happen to know some experienced Croatia travel writers and bloggers that occasionally write something about Croatia. It's rare to know some writers that are present with their books about Croatia from the time when Croatia was not what it is today.
One of them is without hesitation, Jeanne Oliver, a professional travel writer who has been visiting and reporting about Croatia regularly since 1996, just a year after the Homeland War was over.
I've known her since 2004 when I was running a website about Croatia nudist beaches and scuba diving and I remember her first book in English written for Lonely Planet in 1999.
Jeanne isn't writing only about Croatia, she is fortunate to make her living from travel writing for Lonely Planet and Frommers but I know she travels to Croatia annually to update all information on Croatia. It's a right person to get the right tips on Croatia, but not only about the best, but even the bad aspects, Croatia has to offer.
Below you can buy two new comprehensive guides of two most memorable regions, Split, Dalmatia capital and Dubrovnik, the Adriatic pearl.
If you prefer, I advise to visit Jeanne's highly informative website Croatiatraveller to get one copy of these Croatia guide books in pdf format , practical if you want to print it.
For travelers interested in Croatia history, you can buy some informative books about the tragic war in Ex Yugoslavia and the birth of the new Croatian, independent state. You can also find interesting facts about Croatian inventions and some distinguished personages that made Croatia famous.
