Discover the perfect recipe for a trip to
Croatia, where you will experience the

The first ingredient in our recipe hails
from Kvarner Bay
Shrimps from Kvarner are the Adriatic's biggest and most delicious, and probably the region's best-known
speciality. The island of Cres is also renowned for its tender and juicy lamb, and what could be more pleasurable
than sharing a platter with your travelling companions?
And let’s not forget another
in our recipe: some of Croatia’s best wines produced in Slavonia! This historic region reaps
the fruits of its unique characteristics beneficial to the cultivating of vines and winemaking, producing white
wines such as Graševina, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot Gris and Zelenac. You can taste any of the most famous
white varieties on a trip to wineries in Srijem, Đakovo, Kutjevo or Ilok, and find your own favourite!
will also play a starring role during your trip, as you spend time exploring the ancient olive oil routes of Istria.
Friendly local oil-producing families will kindly invite you to dip some fresh bread into some of the most select
olive oils in the world, such as the Buža, Karbonaca and Oblica varieties, sampling the oils’ bitter and
spicy notes. And to complete your experience, don't forget to try the local truffles, one of the
gastronomical pearls of the region of Istria.
