Guide to Croatia History & Architecture for Dummies?

Jump to last reply

I'm not a history or architecture buff, and don't plan on becoming one any time soon. However, Croatia has a fascinating history, and many of its towns and structures reflect the influences of different empires over time. While this won't be the focus of my upcoming trip to Croatia, I'd love to learn a little about Croatia's history and architectural influences so I can have some appreciation for it while I'm there. So:

Any book recommendations that are interesting/easy reads for a non-history buff that do a good job of explaining Croatia's history?

Any guide book recommendations that explain the historical or architectural significance of a town or site in addition to just describing the best sites to see?

Any museum recommendations while in Croatia (in any town along the driving route from Zagreb to Zadar to Dubrovnik)? Seems like almost every large town has its own archeological museum (or at least Zagreb, Zadar, Split, and Dubrovnik do). Did you find any of these (or other museums) educational and interesting as to Croatia's history, or were they mostly just a collection of artifacts without good English descriptions of their significance?

Thanks so much!
