Croatian food has been influenced by tastes and traditions from the neighboring countries that ruled the territory of Croatia over centuries. Traditional Croatian food has some similarity with Italian, Austrian, Hungarian, and Turkish cuisine. Yet, Croatian dishes have their own distinct interpretation, and taste.

Croatian traditional food varies a lot from region to region. And while there are some dishes you'll find throughout Croatia, many dishes found in one Croatian region aren't probably even known in another region.

Dalmatian food, found along the Dalmatian coast, and on the islands, is based heavily on fish and seafood, greens, olive oil, and seasonings like garlic, rosemary, parsley, etc. Dalmatian cuisine is typical Mediterranean cuisine. Slavonians, in the continental part of Croatia, love their pork, and many dishes in Slavonia are simply based on pork meat. Red paprika is the main condiment in Slavonia and Slavonian dishes are quite spicy. While Istrian cuisine reminds in many ways of Dalmatian cuisine, Istria has some of its own typical dishes, and cooking techniques, like manestra, a bean soup prepared only in Istria, or fuzi, a hand-rolled pasta typical for Istria. Truffels are also a well-known delicacy of the Istrian peninsula.

Zagreb, as a capital, is on the intersection of all these influences. This part of Croatia was under Austrian Empire for long so the food has many similarities with the central European cuisine (poultry, nice cakes and Viennese coffees). But Turkish stye of cuisine (sarma – sour cabbage rolls, stuffed peppers etc.), Hungarian spicy dishes like goulash or paprikash as well as Mediterranean cuisine are all very popular here. So Zagreb is an ideal place to get an idea of the diverse Croatian cuisine and its many variations that developed through history.

On this tour you'll get a chance to try typical local dishes (štrukli – savory cheese strudel) as well as Dalmatian delicacies (soparnik – a delicious spinach pie from Dalmatian hinternland, mouthwatering Dalmatian prosciutto etc.). At Zagreb's Central market we'll also try beautiful cheeses from the island of Pag (among them a World winner sheep cheese) and country's best chocolates produced by Kraš in their charming Choco bar. These will be great souvenirs to take home.

Not only you will get full exposure to the Croatian gastronomic tradition, but your visit will also be a great support to the local community.
