This new 2nd edition of Bradt's Croatia: Istria, with Rijeka and the Slovenian Adriatic has been fully updated and remains the only full-length guide to the region including background and practical information.

Istria has some of Croatia's most famous sites, including Pula's Roman amphitheatre, UNESCO-protected Byzantine mosaics in Porec, picturesque medieval hilltowns and frescoes, and the Brijuni Islands National Park, home to Tito's summer residence. This guide also includes the transport hub and gateway city of Rijeka in the neighbouring Kvarner region, which is set to become European Capital of Culture in 2020. Istria makes a great base to explore the nearby Capodistria region of the Slovenian coast and Karst areas, including beautiful coastal towns, Lipizzaner horses and UNESCO-listed caves, all of which are given expanded coverage in this new edition. Also new is increased coverage of the Parenzana cycling and hiking route.

With detailed sections on trekking, cycling and diving, plus information on windsurfing, paragliding, wreck diving (including sites such as the Coriolanus and the Baron Gautsch) and sailing, Bradt's Croatia: Istria, with Rijeka and the Slovenian Adriatic is ideal for adventurous people of all ages and on all budgets, who are curious about this well-heeled part of the former Yugoslavia. There is also a comprehensive wildlife section.

Croatia is renowned for its cuisine (and particularly its truffles) and there is plenty of pampering on offer, too, with some excellent luxury and boutique hotels and restaurants, as well as cheap spas and treatments compared to the rest of mainland Europe. Festivals, music, travelling with children, buying and maintaining property in Croatia, dinosaur tracks and ancient history are all included, as are inland areas which often receive comparatively little attention (and with the exception of Motovun see far fewer visitors than the coast).
