Wherever the road in Croatia and its region Dalmatia leads you, look for a good seafood restaurant or local traditional croatian tavern. The croatian gastronomy along the coast and on the islands is based on the traditional natural and healthy Mediterranean food, which consists of vegetables, olive oil, fish, shells, wine, goat cheese and sheep cheese, citrus fruit, marasca cherries, grapes, figs and almonds. The richness of the sea and sea life combined with herbs like rosemary, bay leaf, basil and olives provides an extraordinary smell and taste. A favorable geographical position in croatian south allows good conditions for growing olive trees, which are used to make the well known Dalmatian olive oil, which is also known as the liquid gold of Croatia.
