Roads of pleasure
Living on the windswept land, flogged by historic storms, the local population has not forgotten to nurture traditional values. Hard-working and resourceful, the native inhabitants carefully studied the newcomers who came with the most diverse intentions. The native population absorbed what seemed useful to them and adjusted it to their everyday lives.
The diversity of influences, habits and customs was beneficiary and led to a varied cuisine, which can satisfy the most demanding palates increasingly looking for healthy food and clean unspoilt nature.
The atmosphere of natural beauty and cultural heritage in Kvarner created the basis for the launch of tourism, which has the longest tradition in Croatia.
