Radio Feature: Rick's Tour Guides Talk about the East
|Listen to Czech guide Katerina Svobodova on Rick's Prague-cast|
Our "Travel with Rick Steves" public radio show has included lots of talk about Eastern Europe lately — from local experts you may travel with. Have a listen! You can also read print interviews with tour guides Cameron Hewitt and Honza Vihan.
Slovenia and Croatia
In this show, two of Rick's Slovenian tour guide friends — Tina Hiti and Marijan Kriskovic — fill us in on why their small country, a pastoral land with storybook castles and turbo-folk music has become the ideal destination for a no-pressure, bargain European escape. Then we'll take a sunny side-trip to nearby Croatia. (Original air date 6/24/06)
Eastern Europe — Then and Now
Now that most of Eastern Europe is part of the E.U., the region is enjoying an extreme make-over. Rick talks with three of our tour guides — Christoph Dressler, Marijan Krisovic and Tina Hiti — who grew up "behind the Iron Curtain" about how these changes have impacted their daily lives, and what the region offers American travelers today.
