With nearly 2000km of rocky, indented shore and more than 1000 islands, Croatia boasts one of the most dramatic stretches of coastline that Europe has to offer. The Rough Guide's 24 page full-colour section introduces the author's highlights, from the medieval city of Dubrovnik to the rural hinterland of Zagreb, to the unspoilt island of Vis and the beaches of the Dalmatian coast. Throughout, there are discerning reviews of all the best places to stay, eat and drink - to suit any pocket. Whilst not well known as a destination for adventure tourism, there are plenty of opportunities for hiking in the hills of the interior or scuba-diving in the Adriatic and the guide includes detailed practical advice. Finally, the Contexts section provides an authoritative background on Croatia's history, folk music and literature.
