Item description for Time Out Croatia (Time Out Guides) by Time Out...
Croatia is the destination of the moment.Some 1,200 miles (2,000km) of crystal clear coastline fringed by 1,200 mainly uninhabited islands is enticing a record number of visitors. The independent traveler can count on easily and cheaply available accommodations, superb seafood, a lively bar scene and --- unless it's a busy island in high season --- lots of space.
Inland, surrounded by national parks, traditional villages and rare wildlife, stands the culturally vibrant, classically Habsburg capital of Zagreb. Together with informed recommendations of restaurants, hotels and nightspots, Time Out Croatia covers all aspects of this newly rediscovered tourist region, from its peculiar history to its secluded beaches and hilltop villages. No other guide offers such a unique insider perspective.

Reviews - What do customers think about Time Out Croatia (Time Out Guides)?
Very disappointing guide book Dec 5, 2007
Recently went to Croatia for a 12 day trip around Istria and the southern part of the country. Was using the Time Out as main source of information and was thoroughly disappointed by level of detail, generic nature of recommendations, missed locations (Trogir not even mentioned and this is a UNESCO World Heritage site!) and even mistakes (the map of Istria has incorrect placement of towns!). In Dubrovnik, someone lent me a short Lonely Planet city guide which was significantly more informative, had descriptions of less major (but still interesting) sites not disclosed in Time Out and provided several suggestions for walking tours. Bottom line, this Time Out guide may be acceptable for certain areas (Split, Hvar and maybe Dubrovnik) if you are going for a long weekend at a maximum, but forget it if spending more than a few days in any city or thinking of going to a less touristy area (although Istria is quite popular and this guide does a very poor job concerning the region). I have used Time Out guides numerous times for specific cities and believe they generally do a terrific job; however, it is apparent that the same quality does not transcend to country guides.
