I get irritated ....

Fairly often a newcomer will post a request for help. Basically they want someone to suggest an itinerary, possible sights to see and hotels that are cheat but elegant--in major European cities.

My first suggestion is always the same--buy a guidebook.

Now I'm in that boat myself. I have a Fodors "Croatia and Slovernia," and it's stuffed with information--way too much to take in. I'm going to wait until the 2012 Rick Steves (I know--boo, hiss!) " Croatia and Slovenia" is in, and hope that it will help me make choices, since he pares his itinerary down so the information is more manageable for someone who isn't very familiar with those countries. After I know where I want to go, I will use the Fodors for detailed information.

But in the meantime, perhaps some of you could tell me which areas and towns in those two countries you enjoyed. I like beautiful scenery, architecture, history, culture, just walking around or sitting in a sidewalk cafe soaking up the ambiance.

I am not interested in nightlife, wines, beaches and the like. I don't like to shop.

I'm open to either driving or using public transportation. In the late 60's I drove along the Dalmatian coast and then through central Yugoslavia , but I remember almost nothing about it. I think I had the oil changed in my car in Zagreb, but that and a couple of stray memories are all that I recall. Pretty pitiful, huh?

So, can you suggest cities and areas in Croatia or Slovenia that you enjoyed?
