Gourmet Sailing Croatia

Gourmet Sailing Croatia

Croatia is a country of 1000 islands and thus a destination with 1000 flavors and gastronomic experiences. Sailing is inseparable from the gastronomic experience of the region you are visiting, and Croatia is a real gourmet paradise.

Croatian gastronomy is a collage of different nations, cultures, and traditions. As different nations have lived and ruled this area throughout history, part of their customs and culture has remained rooted in today's culinary scene.

Croatian islands and coast abound in restaurants, taverns, and eco-friendly farms that offer excellent service, freshly prepared fish, and meat specialties from local ingredients, accompanied by world-renowned indigenous varieties of wine.

Croatians are generally big gourmands who give a lot of importance to food and big family gatherings around the table. Croats like to discuss food, share recipes, and generally spend time at the table. An integral part of life is going to the green market or fish market every day, and this is one of the experiences you need to try while sailing the Adriatic.
