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

Ciovo is not the best place to buy brand clothes and shoes. Of course, you can visit the shops in Trogir but in Split, which is located very close to the coast, there is a lot more choice and better prices. So if you want to buy a handbag from the latest collection from a world-famous designer, then it’s worth to set aside one day for shopping on the mainland of Croatia. However, on Ciovo, you can buy a lot of souvenirs of local production, which will remind you about your trip here for many years. Consider that on the island it is customary to bargain not only at the markets but also at the coastal stores.

Many travelers are convinced that Croatia is a paradise for those who like alcohol. And alcohol is what you should bring home from here. It is understandable: there are almost seven hundred varieties of wines in the local stores, 76 of which are considered elite, so it's worth buying a bottle or two of this grape drink. For those who like something stronger, there are herbal tinctures Sljivovica and Travarica, vodka Lozovac and Maraschino cherry liqueur. From soft drinks, you should pay attention to local coffee – the Croats are very fond of it, and therefore only the best grades are sold in the stores.
Do you like sweets or want to make a gift that everyone will appreciate? Then pay attention to the local desserts. Dry fig jam, gingerbread cookies Paprenjaci, honey, chocolate with pepper, and, of course, Licitar heart will be enjoyed by all those who like sweets. The Licitar heart is not only a delicious honey cake, which almost doesn’t get bad, but also a very symbolic gift. A Croatian man presents it to his favorite girl as a sign of the seriousness of his feelings. A bottle of olive oil Djevicansko will be a practical and versatile purchase. Copyright

Pagski cheese, which was brought to Ciovo from the island of Pag, without a doubt will be a good edible souvenir. Soaked in herbs, with an unusual spicy taste, it is often sold in beautiful souvenir packs. As well as dried-smoked pork ham prsut, by the way. You can also bring home from the island delicious sausages, which are called here Zagorje or Samoborska cesnjovka. Many travelers also advise buying local truffles or truffle pasta.
Any Morcic jewelry will be a very Croatian gift. Now they are produced in the form of trinkets, and in the form of pendants, and earrings. The production material can vary. They use precious metals, semi-precious stones, polymer clay, and ceramics but the shape remains unchanged – the head of the Moor in a turban. Previously, Morcic was made exclusively from wood and presented to sailors and fishermen to protect them from accidents and for good luck in business. Many bring from Ciovo a copy of the Vučedol dove, a traditional Croatian ritual vessel. The dove, by the way, is quite fragile, and it should be transported very carefully.

To your business partner or a boss you can present a Nalivpero pen or a tie from the local manufacturers. What is interesting, is that for a long time a tie was a part of a national costume and military uniform for the Croats. It was not just an element of business style in clothes. You can also buy here white stone crafts from the island of Brac. The statuettes and carved trinkets are not only beautiful but, according to the local residents, also scare away evil spirits. Be sure to purchase local lavender. A small bag of this grass, placed under the pillow, will give pleasant dreams. If you leave it among the linen, it will give freshness to the clothing. You can also buy local lace, carved candles, and seashells, and coral crafts, sold on the coast in abundance.
