Helped me properly plan my trip.

Very useful with its recommended itineraries, that allowed me to maximize the coverage of the most interesting locations within my available timeframe for traveling. I am now more confident with orientation around the country and particular places, due to useful advice on various places intended to visit. Also, just by reading, already got a good picture of the country's geography, history and ethnical background.

Very helpful

Great info, clear, good history. The only thing missing is an updated version post-pandemic as this on was from 2019 and so much has happened since then. Regardless, highly recommended

Which guidebook is right for me?
