You can’t really enjoy your stay in Croatia without having a taste of some of their local drinks. While bars offer tens and hundreds of options, there are a couple of drinks you should never miss. You won’t just enjoy it, but it will make you feel the way the Croatians feel. Rakija is by far the most popular alcoholic drink in the country of Croatia. It is served at the beginning of almost every meal and usually taken with figs. The people never joke with it as you’ll find it everywhere, including bars, restaurants, hotels, events, festivals, and ceremonies. It’s sturdy though, with about 40% alcohol content, so be careful when turning those bottle bottoms up. There are several varieties of the drink, but the most common you should try is the honey rakija called medica and višnjevača (the cherry rakija). Click the next ARROW to see the next photo!
