Holiday season is a time of relaxation with the family, fun in the open, but certainly also excellent holiday food. Although the Christmas and New Year is a time of rich dining tables throughout Croatia, the island of Krk is proud of its specialties in which residents traditionally enjoy the holidays!

Fish specialties


The Christmas Eve is the traditional day of fasting, and for fish and seafood lovers, a day when you will indulge in the best fish specialties. Although on Krk and the surrounding area cod is being prepared for hundreds of years on Christmas Eve, local squid can often be found on island dining tables thanks to squid season at this time of year.

Squid caught along the coast of Krk are prepared in a number of ways - fried, stuffed, in a sauce with polenta...


Christmas lunch


On Christmas Day, specially rich holiday dishes are prepared, in the first place made of lamb. About the specialties of lamb we have written in one of our earlier texts!

Lamb under the peka is one of the most popular holiday dishes as well as one of the best ways to prepare lamb at all. Specifically for the island of Krk, lamb stew (žgvacet) is prepared for the holidays. It is lamb in a rich sauce made of wine, tomato and aromatic herbs served as a rule with šurlice - local pasta. With this dish, the glass of Vrbnička žlahtina is going great.


Sweet foods


No holiday table is complete without desserts, and on the tables of the island of Krk we will find two traditional desserts: fritule and kroštule. Every toddler will soon be able to explain why these fried desserts are their favorite dish!

During your stay in the holiday home on the island of Krk, treat yourself to one of the Krk holiday specialties that are prepared in the restaurants throughout the year!
