Get to know the real Croatia by sampling your way through its best-loved local delicacies accompanied by a knowledgeable local guide. Delve into the country’s culinary past and learn all about how Croatia’s history helped shaped the local cuisine. Start with a visit to bustling Dolac Market, the city’s oldest and most famous market, and its culinary heart. Browse the many stalls teeming with colourful produce, meet the farmers, and sample locally prepared goods including homemade cornbread and fresh cottage cheese. Save some stomach space, though, because next it’s time for a traditional Zagreb breakfast at one of the most famous taverns in Upper Town. As you move through the city, you’ll get to enjoy a wide variety of local Croatian food and drink, including truffles from Istria, awards-laden olive oils, Štrukli (dough layered with soft cheese), as well as rakija (a potent herbal brandy purported to improve blood circulation and immunity). Amidst all that eating and drinking you’ll also have a chance to explore the small, winding streets of Upper Town, and stop by the city’s historical (and some say mystical) Stone Gate. You’ll finish up your day with a visit to a cheese bar where you’ll enjoy some award-winning Croatian cheeses, flavoured with herbs and truffles. You’ll want to leave at least a bit of space at the end though, for a surprise treat that will please your sweet tooth. By the end of the tour you may be full, but you’ll also be relishing the unique tastes of Croatian cuisine. Language English Redeem informationVoucher type: PrintedPrinted Voucher.
