Frommer's Croatia offers detailed, complete coverage of this captivating, increasingly popular country. Our authors, Karen and Sanja Olson, takes you inside the thriving cities of Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Split, with their spectacular Roman ruins, medieval old towns and nearby storybook castles. She recommends the best way to sail or drive the country's stunning Dalmatian Coast, with pristine beaches along more than 3,000 miles of coastline, and more than 1,000 offshore islands. She explores such natural wonders as Plitvice Lakes National Park, where pristine turquoise lakes tumble into waterfalls over deposits of travertine. And she ventures into inland Croatia for a visit to Hlebine, a colony of nearly 200 painters and sculptors that features the country's largest concentration of naive art. From the Turkish bazaar like feel of Split's Pazarin market to the lowdown on Zagreb's see-and-be-seen cafe culture, Frommer's Croatia showcases the best of a country that has long been labeled Europe's best-kept secret.
