About this book

The wildlife of central and eastern Europe is one of the unexpected attractions of a region best known for its cultural assets: relatively few visitors are aware of the diversity on their holiday doorstep, from brown bears and wolves to numerous birds no longer common in the west of the continent.

Accessible and full colour throughout, the guide will appeal both to the holidaymaker and to the serious naturalist seeking a compact volume to carry around.

The guide covers the wildlife of: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Kaliningrad, Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, and Bosnia & Herzegovina.

'Bradt Travel Guides simply have the best wildlife coverage of any of the popular guide books.' BBC Wildlife
