Split: Snacks and Drinks in Tiny Square

After we arrived in Split everyone decided that a drink and a snack was in order. So, we went into the palace-city and wandered along very narrow lanes with no special plan in mind. We stumbled on a tiny unnamed square, which seemed perfect—and it was. The setting was serene, with just a few tables, and greenery everywhere—hanging flower baskets on the wall and even the lamp-post covered.

beer

vwineSonya enjoyed a Croatian beer (pivo) called Karlovačko, Nath her bottled water (voda) and Rod and I a bottle of white Croatian wine, with our soup and salads.

The Croatian wine industry has started to pick up again after the break-up of Yugoslavia and devastating civil wars in the area. They have a number of different grape varietals, such as plavac mali (red), pošip (white) and graševina (white). Graševina is crisp, dry and acidic (a bit like Welsh Riesling). We tried it a number of times during our time in Croatia and found it delightful—refreshing and not too heavy.
