Croatian cuisine is quite diverse so it is hard to say which meal would be "typically Croatian". In the eastern continental regions (Slavonija and Baranja) spicy sausages kulen and kulenova seka is a must-try. Čobanac ('shepherd's stew') is a mixture of several different kinds of meat with a lot of red spicy paprika. In Hrvatsko Zagorje and Central Croatia pasta filled with cheese called štrukli is a famous delicacy (it is said that the best štrukli in Croatia are served in Esplanade hotel restaurant in Zagreb), as it is purica s mlincima (baked turkey with a special kind of pastry). Sir i vrhnje (sour cream with cottage cheese) can be bought fresh on the Zagreb main market Dolac. Croats love a bit of oil and you will find plenty of it in piroška and burek. Burek is a regional delicacy and is widely popular in the entire South and Eastern Europe, as its roots come from the medieval Ottoman empire which stretched from Turkey to Croatia in 1593. Carnivores will enjoy in ćevapčići (seasoned minced meat shaped in finger-like portions, served in bread, covered with kajmak and onions) and sarma (sauerkraut rolls filled with minced meat and rice), also dating back to the Turkish rule. In mountain regions of Lika and Gorski kotar famous are products made of mushrooms, wild berries and wild meat. For Lika tipical are police (oven-baked potatoes covered with bacon) and several kinds of cheese (smoked cheese and škripavac). Coastal region is well known for truffle delicacies and soup maneštra od bobić (Istria), Dalmatian pršut (prosciutto) and paški sir (Pag-island cheese). Dishes made of fresh fish and other products of the sea (calamari, octopus, crabs, scampi) shouldn't be missed also!

Desserts: Different kinds of gibanica and pita (similar to strudel and pie) such as orehnjača (walnut), makovnjača (poppy) or bučnica (pumpkin and cheese) are highly recomended. Dubrovačka torta od skorupa is hard to find, but worth the search. Paprenjaci (pepper cookies) are said to reflect the Croatian history because they combine the harshness of the war turmoils (pepper) and the natural beauties of the land (honey) and can be bought in every tourist shop as souvenirs. Fresh-made are always a better choice. Rapska torta (Cake of the Rab island) is made with almonds and locally famous cherry liker Maraschino. Chocolate candy "Bajadera" can be bought in every shop and is considered to be the pride of Croatian chocolate industry.

Every household in Croatia has to have a package of "Vegeta". It's a spice produced by "Podravka" and a common ingredient of every meal in the country.


Alcoholic: Try many different kinds of wines. Also worth trying is rakija,a trype of brandy which can be made of plum (šljivovica), grapes (loza), figs (smokovača) and many other types of fruit and aromatic herbs. Pelinkovac is a bitter herbal liquor popular in Central Croatia, but is said to resemble in flavour to cough-medicine. Non-alcoholic: Sometimes although very rarely you may find "sok od bazge" (elder-berry juice) in the continental region. Worth trying!

On a more general note, Croatia produces a broad palette of high quality wines (up to 700 wines with protected geographic origin) and brandies, fruit juices, beers and mineral water. On the coast people usualy serve "bevanda" with meals. Bevanda is heavy, richly flavored red wine mixed with plain water. Its counter-part in northern parts of Croatia is "gemisht". This term designates dry, flavored wines mixed with mineral water.

Two most popular beers are "Karlovačko" and "Ožujsko", but "Velebitsko pivo" has recieved a semi-cult status in the recent years. It is served only in some places in Zagreb and Croatia.
