Slightly smaller than West Virginia, Croatia measures around 23.000 square miles and its abundance may come as a surprise. Featuring three distinct climates, its sceneries, lifestyles and traditions are ever-changing. Today, a growing number of hospitality venues across the country engages in showcasing this uniqueness and diversity with style – and taste.
In the flatlands of the Croatian north, these are castles which grew upon medieval towers, serving spicy, hearty dishes. In Istria, mystical towns perched up on the hills of its rolling interior offer specialties like fuži and truffles. Elegant Istrian stancija’s, former agricultural estates, are an ultimate encounter with the peninsula’s past. Along the Adriatic, think ancient, think pristine, think sea views, think scents of the Mediterranean. Historic palazzos restored to modern comfort, but also contemporary style villas on the seafront. Unique wines, extra-virgin olive oils, fresh fish, lots of grilling, ancient skills like peka.
