Steves' black and white maps of Nordic cities photocopy really well. Maps show by numbers hotels, restaurants, and sights. A walking map with sights is included for each major Nordic city. Good description of sights, perhaps too wordy when he goes into a the history of a sight, but still interesting info when planning a trip at home. He also tells readers the numbers of buses to take to get to city sights. Steves' tends to favor budget eateries and hotels but gives examples of all price ranges. I enjoyed reading through the city descriptions.
