When the late Anthony Bourdain finally made it to Croatia in 2011, he chided himself for taking so long to experience this slice of heaven. He raved as he dined on sumptuous cuisine and enjoyed more than his share of world class wines. He reveled in the natural beauty of the country: idyllic beaches, white stone villages, and fields of lavender. He mingled with warm and friendly Croatians, and he urged every traveler to make it a priority to visit Croatia.
FOOD: Croatia is a foodie paradise and offers a plethora of sensational culinary experiences. Heavily influenced by the Venetians, Romans, Greeks, Hungarians, and Austrians, each region offers its own unique cuisine. From meat dishes and stews spiced with black pepper, paprika, and garlic found inland to seafood cuisine cooked with rosemary, bay leaf, oregano, and olive oil in the coastal regions, there is a dish to excite every hungry traveler.
WINE: The art of winemaking has been slowly perfected in the region, starting with the Greeks who first settled on the southern Dalmatian Islands over 2400 years ago. With over 800 wineries the Croatians know a thing or two about making good wines. You are bound to find a glass or a bottle that is pleasing to your palate.
