Dalmatian Coast
The pace on the Dalmatian Coast is leisurely, with ample time set aside for socializing over coffee and meals. Food is often spread out over a large table, eaten in groups, and accompanied by homemade wine or rakija—the local spirit, made from fermented fruit; sometimes you'll hear klapa, traditional Dalmatian folk songs. The majority of Dalmatians are Christian, and a visit to church on Sundays is an important aspect of local culture. As in many parts of Europe, soccer is the other religion; you'll make easy friends if you cheer for the home team while watching a match.
