Welcome to Dubrovnik & the Dalmatian Coast
If your Mediterranean fantasies feature balmy days by sapphire waters in the shade of ancient walled towns, Dalmatia is the place to turn them into reality. The extraordinary island-speckled coastline is backed by rugged mountains and bookended by two of Croatia’s most intriguing cities: Dubrovnik, to the south, and Split, to the north.

Eating

Croatian food echoes the cultures that have influenced it over its history. In Dalmatia the primary influence is Venice and the cuisine is typically Mediterranean. Favourite ingredients include olive oil, garlic, flat-leaf parsley, bay leaves and all manner of seafood. Meals often begin with a first course of pasta or rižoto (risotto).

Specialties
For a special appet-iser, try paški sir , a pungent hard sheep’s cheese from the island of Pag. Lamb from Pag is deemed Croatia’s best; they feed on wild herbs, which gives the meat a distinct flavour. It’s traditionally enjoyed either spit-roasted or cooked ispod peka (roasted under a metal dome topped with hot coals;). At restaurants, peka dishes usually need to be ordered in advance.
Seafood favourites include baked whole fish, fried lignje (squid, sometimes stuffed with cheese and prosciutto) and hobotnica (octopus, either carpaccio, in a salad or cooked under a peka ).
Other regional specialties include brodet (a seafood stew served with polenta; also known as brodetto , brudet or brujet , depending on which part of the coast you’re from) and pašticada (beef stewed in wine, prunes and spices and served with gnocchi). The most typical side dish is blitva (Swiss chard served with slightly mushy potatoes and drenched in olive oil and garlic).

Wine

Wine from Croatia may be a novelty to international consumers but vino has been an embedded part of the region’s lifestyle for more than 25 centuries. Today the tradition is undergoing a renaissance in the hands of a new generation of winemakers with a focus on preserving indigenous varietals and revitalising ancestral estates.

Dalmatian Varietals
Dalmatia, with its island vineyards, fosters a fascinating array of indigenous grape varieties that prosper in the Mediterranean climate, yielding full-bodied wines of rich character. Here plavac mali, scion of zinfandel (crljenik kašteljanski) and the obscure dobričić, is king of reds. Wines labelled ‘Dingač’ are plavac mali from a specific mountainside high above the sea on the Pelješac Peninsula that’s widely regarded as producing Croatia’s best reds . Production is tiny and good examples command premium prices.
Other indigenous varieties worth seeking are babić (red), pošip (an elegant white, the best of which is from the island of Korčula), grk (a fruit-driven white, exclusively produced in Lumbarda on Korčula) and malvasija (a white from the Kvarner region, near Dubrovnik, not to be confused with malvazija with a ‘z’ from Istria). For easy-chair quaffing, the lovely rosés of Dalmatia are perfect for lazy Mediterranean days.
Most Croatian wineries are family-owned estates and not all have visitor-ready facilities; appointments are recommended.

Drinking & Nightlife

Cafe-bars are ubiquitous throughout Dalmatia – they’re places where locals go to shoot the breeze for hours at a time. The liveliest bar scenes can be found in Split and, in summer, Hvar. You won’t go thirsty in Dubrovnik either – the city has Irish pubs, cliff-edge bars, wine bars and lots of cafe-bars. And that’s just the old town.

Local Tipples
Croatia is famous for its rakija (potent fruit brandy), which comes in different flavours. The most commonly drunk are loza (made from grapes, like the Italian grappa), šljivovica (from plums) and travarica (from herbs). The island of Vis is famous for its delicious rogačica (from carob). It’s customary to have a small glass of rakija before a meal. Other popular drinks include vinjak (cognac), maraschino (cherry liqueur made in Zadar), prošek (sweet dessert wine) and pelinkovac (herbal liqueur).
The two most popular types of Croatian pivo (beer) are Zagreb’s Ožujsko and Karlovačko from Karlovac.
