Is This the Right Book for Me?

Should I get this Snapshot guide in addition to Rick's full-length Croatia & Slovenia guidebook?

Nope! Our Snapshot guides are simply excerpted chapters from our full-length guidebooks. Snapshot: Dubrovnik covers the exact same topics as the Dubrovnik and Near Dubrovnik chapters of Rick Steves Croatia & Slovenia — the same hotels, same restaurants, same sightseeing information, same everything.
