Lonely Planet publishes a new guide on Croatia
The most famous tourist guide in the world, Lonely Planet, has recently published a guide entitled «Croatia»in which the authors Anja Mutić and Iain Stewart published information that they have gathered on their travels around all parts of Croatia. It is an all round tourist guide featuring 43 maps, information about 500 cafes and restaurants and hundreds of destinations to be discovered.

A rare connection of glamour and authenticity, where the beaches and the sun compete in their beauty with cultural treasures, ancient architecture and long lasting national traditions, is the leading thought with which the authors want to describe the reasons why Croatia is exactly that `it` destination worth visiting.

In the first part the authors give advice on how to plan the trip by pointing out useful information such as climate conditions during every month of the year, itineraries and introducing Croatian regions. Everything is supplemented with many photographs. The second part of the guide is dedicated to getting to know Croatia through its history, culture, people, traditions, natural treasures and art. The guide continues with 43 maps, detailed descriptions and information about certain destinations and useful advice. The last chapter is dedicated to gastronomy, accommodation, restaurants, cinemas and theatres, working hours of public institutions, banks, post offices as well as other important tourist information which they call `instructions for survival`. In the guide tourists also get the basics of getting around in Croatian language, with useful phrases that could help them during their travels. The book is not just a usual tourist guide full of information, although it contains a lot of it, but a description of Croatia on a personal level, with an objective eye and a frequently witty descriptive approach.

Lonely Planet `Croatia` is available in print as well as an online format and can be acquired in bookstores all over the world in English, Italian, French, German and from October 2011, in Portuguese.
