Olive Oil from Croatia?
Updated: Dec 11, 2019
You probably know about olive oil from countries like Spain or Italy but yes, Croatia makes olive oil too!
For starters, where is Croatia??
You know how Italy looks like a long boot and west of it is France, Spain, etc? East of it is Croatia:
Consequently, Croatia's coastal region:
Has essentially the same climate as the rest of the Mediterranean countries
Is heavily influenced by its neighbours to the west (Italy) in terms of:
History- For example, Roman emperor Diocletian has a palace in the city, Split
Language- While everyone speaks Croatian (which is a slavic language) everyone sounds like they could be Italian
Food!- Pizza, cheese, pasta, etc. are all incredible. But more on that below.
