Croatia

From the northernmost shores of the Kvarner Gulf, southwards all the way to Dubrovnik, this walking and touring guide covers Croatia's Adriatic coast, eleven of the myriad islands and two inland areas. It includes the Mljet, Plitvice Lakes, Krka and Paklenica national parks and Biokovo and Ucka nature parks, as well as five of Croatia's six World Heritage sites.

Happily, these bald though impressive facts describe one of the most beautiful and beguiling countries in Europe. Contrasts and diversity sum up Croatia: tall forests, wind-combed prickly thornbush and juniper on the stony uplands, the miraculous waterfalls in the Plitvice Lakes and Krka national parks, the aridity of the karst landscapes, modern tourist resorts and timeless old villages, the deserted Krajina region and the intensively cultivated Neretva delta.

9 car tours (with two accompanying touring maps), 50 long and short walks (with 1:50,000 topo maps), 30 picnic suggestions/short walks. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.

Sandra Bardwell is a lifelong walker and admirer of John Muir's writing; she has written guidebooks for Lonely Planet, Sunflower and Rucksack Readers. Jacquetta Megarry is a professional author turned publisher, and creator of the Rucksack Reader series.
