Shopping in Brac Island - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

On the island of Brač, there are no major shopping centers or outlets. Therefore, if you want to buy branded clothes and shoes, it's worth spending a little time to travel to mainland Croatia. If you decide to go from the island on an excursion, for example, to Split, to the Diocletian's Palace, then try to find the time and visit the big shops there. In Brac, it is worth buying souvenirs and products from the local producers.
Brac island is one of the largest among the islands of Croatia. Here, on 400 square kilometers are both untouched natural corners, as well as architectural monuments of the old days. Brac … Open
Perhaps, the most unique souvenir of all, sold on the island, can be considered artifacts from the Brač stone. The point here is not that it was the material from which the Capitol was made, and not even that such white limestone isn’t mined anywhere else. The point is in the meaning of products from the Brač stone to the local residents. In some places, residents still keep at least one piece of this material in their homes for the protection from the evil spirits. It is not at all necessary to believe in the power of the stone in order to admire the finest work of carver craftsmen who create amazing products from this beautiful material.
As a practical souvenir you can buy a small bag of lavender. Lavender calms, gives a strong sleep and serves as an excellent natural freshener for laundry. You can also buy lavender oil. There is also a great choice of shells and crafts made of them, and figured candles. The original souvenir will be local lace and Vucedol dove, which is a copy of a cult vessel on three legs. Please note that the pigeon is very fragile. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
In general, the courses that you can taste in Brac are not much different from those in continental Croatia. The only thing: the variety of fish courses here is much bigger, and you can … Open
An interesting gift will be the jewelry from the Morcic factory. Brooches, earrings, pendants – they are all united by the unity of form. Each decoration is made in the form of a head of a Moor with a turban. It is believed that they were originally made from wood and served as a guard for local fishermen. Now Morcic is made from ceramics coated with glaze, and from Venetian glass, and even from precious and semiprecious stones and metals. A pen from the local firm Nalivpero or a tie will be a good gift for the boss. The latter, by the way, is very popular in the territory of Croatia, not only as an accessory to a suit. For centuries, ties were worn both as an attribute of national clothes and as part of military uniforms.
Brac Among the edible souvenirs Prsut is without any doubt on the first place. Pork ham, first smoked in coals, and then dried under the sun is unusually delicious and is sold already in gift wrapping as well. Pay attention to local sausages – Zagorian or Samoborian. Marinated or dried truffles are sold here, and if you want, you can also find truffle pasta. It is worth paying attention to the local cheese and olive oil. As a gift for your beloved, a local cake called “Litsitarskoe heart” is just perfect. By the way, it almost does not deteriorate, because, in fact, it is nothing more than a gingerbread. The local residents have a tradition to offer the girl their heart almost naturally, presenting this cake as a gift.
The Croatians surprisingly combined the features of the Slavs, Romans, Turks, and many others, for centuries being close to completely different neighbors in terms of culture and perception … Open
However, there are many desserts on the island. Maybe they are not so symbolic but still especially delicious. Gingerbread "Paprenjaci", jam from dry figs, chocolate with pepper, local honey, candies Bajadera – those, who like sweets, will be satisfied. If you want, in the confectionery they will make any dessert of your choice. From alcoholic beverages, in addition to wine and beer, it is worth paying attention to the stronger, herbs infused Sljivovica and Travarica. Lozavach local vodka, Maraschino cherry liqueur, and pear Krushkovac are also good. Grappa in a ship-formed bottle will also be an original souvenir.
