Croatia's coastal climate is Mediterranean; summers are sunny,
hot and dry whilst winters are mild but may be wet. Inland, a
continental climate can result in high summer temperatures with
little or no breeze to moderate them; winters can be harsh and
heavy snowfall is not uncommon.
Croatia's cuisine is influenced by its European neighbours - and
particularly Italy - but the country is steadily gaining a
reputation for the quality of its gastronomy and wines. A long
coastline means that fresh seafood is a speciality, but roasted or
cured meat dishes are equally popular.
Guests touring Croatia by train should be aware when ordering
fish it is customary to serve it baked and whole.
As you journey through Croatia by train you'll discover that the
cuisine of inland areas differs from that of the coast. Croatia
offers many fabulous dishes but if you're unsure of what a
particular dish is, or would like a recommendation our Tour Manager
will be happy to oblige.
