Guidebook for Eastern Europe?

Jump to last reply

From the beginning of September until mid-October I'll be in Southeastern Europe for work (mainly the countries of the former Yugoslavia but also Albania, probably Hungary, and maybe Romania and/or Bulgaria). I'm wondering if taking a guidebook along would be a good idea, and if so, which one. Does anyone have any recommendations? I would use it to consider weekend trips as well as things to do in the places I find myself for work.

Obviously a lot of info is on the web, but I'm not sure how much Internet access I will have outside work.

As far as leisure goes, I enjoy learning about the history and culture of places I visit (incl. historic sites & museums), as well as photography (both urban and nature). I'm not a big outdoorsman but do enjoy some hiking/walking. I am not interested in nightlife (bars, pubs, dancing) but would enjoy a concert or "folk performance".

For accommodations and dining I run to the budget end of things rather than the 5-star end. I'm old enough that a hostel dorm bed is not an option, though!

Any suggestion for which ONE guidebook might best serve me for the countries I mentioned above? It need not be limited to only those, although I doubt I will range as far north as Poland or the countries of the former USSR, and probably not the Czech Republic or Slovakia. I have looked at a few books, but from the perspective of sitting at home before the trip, they all seem to have advantages and disadvantages, so I am having a hard time deciding.

Thanks!
