One of the more famous desserts in Croatia is a kind of simple fritter called fritule. It's made out of a mixture of flour, eggs, dry yeast, and warm water, milk or yogurt.
The dough is formed in small balls, fried in oil and covered with powdered sugar. The taste of these fried balls is similar to doughnuts. Croatian fritule has a distinct taste because of some special ingredients tossed into the mix like raisins, lemon zest, rum or apples. The fritule is an integral part of the culture of the coastal region because it is a must-serve on the family table especially during holidays in Dalmatia.

The town of Split is the second largest city in the country and the largest city in the Dalmatia region. The city was initially built around the Diocletian’s Palace (a fortress-like palace built for the retired Roman emperor Diocletian).It's where the locals, many centuries ago, sought refuge. However, this city is not a small tourist town at all though it may seem like it. It expands over a large area, well beyond the ancient city center. Modern Split is a city with 180 000 dwellers.It is appointed as an economic hub of the Eastern Adriatic shoreline (an unofficial "capital" of Dalmatia). It's more fun to explore Split for yourself!I’d love to help you plan your trip, so be sure to call me or send me an email when you’re ready to start planning.
