Members of world jet set have been visiting Hvar, but there are also hidden places on the island where one can truly relax in peace and quiet. Vis is now open to all visitors, as opposed to the past when it was a military base and unavailable to guests for a long time.

 

Gastronomy

Where ever you go, there are good restaurants waiting for you, with an offer of fish specialties, prosciutto or cheese, and after a good meal you can taste sweet crispy Dalmatian cakes called kroštule, a typical Dalmatian sweet.

fishAs an appetizer we recommend famous Dalmatian brandy "lozovača" and "travarica" which will open your appetite and prepare you for delicacies to follow. Traditional way of hosting guests in Dalmatia starts with one such appetizer, followed by prosciutto, fine most often oil dipped cheese. This is often eaten together with olives, black or green, as you prefer.

Other tasty dishes are fish soups with polenta, grilled fish or octopus under the baking lid. Dalmatian cuisine is simple and very healthy, and is prepared in a simple manner. You wouldn't believe what magic can be made with some olive oil, garlic, pepper and salt.

For dessert we suggest "fritule" or their smaller and crispier variant, "kroštule". You must be asking yourself, what to drink with all these delicacies?
Dalmatian like to say that since fish swims in the sea, it must also swim in wine, which means that a glass of wine is necessary when preparing fish. Dessert wine "prošek" is usually drunk to desserts.
