Autochthonous cuisine in the Una river valley

Other than trout, the fish living in the crystal clear water of the river of Una and its tributaries and the gastronomic trademark of the Una river valley, the untouched nature of this region also offers a wealth of diversity and foodstuffs for the preparation of delicious, healthy and traditional meals that will leave no true food lover disappointed. 

If you find yourself in the Lika part of the Zadar County or in the vicinity of Donji Lapac, be sure to try police, baked potato halves made with famous Lika potato, venison or sauerkraut with sausages and other cured meats, goat, sheep or cow cheese, basa, delicacies such as Lika fritters or drinks - famous Lika plum brandy and various liqueurs.

The autochthonous flavours and aromas of traditional Bosnian cuisine will make you try Bosnian meat stew – jahnija, dish traditionally prepared in a crock with various types of meat and vegetables, world-famous stuffed onions - sogan dolma, and desserts such as hurmašice or brdare.
