Entertainment And Dining Out
Croatian cuisine is quite diverse. In the eastern continental regions (Slavonija and Baranja) spicy sausage such as kulen or kulenova seka is a must-try. Cobanac, or shepherd’s stew, is a mixture of several different kinds of meat with a lot of red spicy paprika. In Hrvatsko Zagorje and Central Croatia, pasta filled with cheese called strukli, is a famous delicacy, as is purica s mlincima (baked turkey with a special kind of pastry).
