My husband and I took a motorcycle trip through Eastern Europe in September 2008, for four weeks, and this book was absolutely essential. It was fantastic for recommending things to see, giving us a background about a country to make our experience meaningful, and giving us a heads up about important specifics (like that your hotel takes your passport and notifies the police that you are staying with them). I absolutely recommend it if you are looking to a guide to the area, no matter how you ar ...more

We had a 3 week trip in Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary. The book is quite helpful; yet not complete. We had some terrible experiences in some hotels and places they recommended.

Recommends it for: travellers in Eastern Europe

Lonely Planet guidebooks make very useful travelling companions - they don't have many colour photos or as much information about the sights, but they work really well as a sort of Yellow Pages of each place. This one came in real handy as we travelled through the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia and Croatia, alternately looking for bars, restaurants, post offices, Internet cafes, public facilities, you name it. Recommended!

This book has brief overviews of 21 countries in Eastern Europe especially for smaller cities it is a little short on specifics and doesn’t have a huge overview on the bigger cities. I bought it because I was going to 4 countries in Eastern Europe and didn’t want to buy 4 guidebooks. It served it’s purposes.

Lonely Planet Books are indispensable, I just wish they were better at referencing the map in the text, and the page ref from the map key.

A great little guide to this part of Europe and an excellent foretaste of what I might see IF I get there in late 2010!
