    Bajadera

    One of the unique and best tastes of Croatia is Bajadera. That is the local quality chocolate, it is one of my favourite chocolates, unfortunately I can only get it in Croatia and so in my last visit I bought lots of it to take back home with me.

    Komovica

    by Gili_S Written Mar 6, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We all know about Sljivovica, but this product was a bit new to me, it is the local Raki drink and they call it here Komovica. This is very old traditional drink for the Balkan region. This particular made of grapes.
    You can buy in supermarket, food stores and of course at the airport. This one is of the Badel distillery brand which is one of the biggest in Croatia and if you want to be sure of a bit better quality product you can select this Badel Komovica.

    What to buy: Komovica

    As usual when travelling and shopping I try to taste and buy the local spirit of the place and in Croatia it is of course Sljivovica and in this case the famouse Badel Sljivovica. Easy place to buy it is at the airport just before you board your flight home.

    What to buy: Sljivovica

    Missori: Luxurious Shoes and Bags

    by SabrinaSummerville Written Apr 4, 2008

    Outside - a typical Dubrovnik door

    I quickly discovered that the old town on Dubrovnik has not shortage of amazing designer boutiques and, as I hadn't set out to designate this a "shopping holiday", I was keeping my eyes averted from the goodies winking at me from every second elegantly dressed window.

    Therefore, Missori took me by surprise. It lurks unobtrusively on a corner and so has window frontage on two streets. This makes it harder to resist.

    I "just" wandered in to check out the goods, no intention of buying, and came away with a divine black leather Roberto Cavalli Bag studded with brass. The shop was happy to give a 10% discount for cash and I was more than delighted with my purchase.

    This shop also stocks some fabulous designer shoes so be prepared.

    What to pay: It's designer, so prepare for matching prices.

    Malls and Grocery Store: Smoking

    by nichole_521 Written Feb 18, 2008

    We visited a mall and grocery stores and people and workers were all smoking in the stores/mall. This was such a strange experience because in Minnesota smoking is not even allowed in bars/restaurants - let alone stores!

  • Casa Croatica: The best shop in Dubrovnik

    by Nicole_dv Written Jun 2, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The shop is located in one of the side and narrow streets of the old town and it connects the main street and Prijeko (the restaurant street). It is the warmest and cosiest place I've seen in Dubrovnik!! The interior is designed with wood and stone, old furniture, bricks for the wines, and old traditional objects. It is a place where you can really feel the local ambiance.
    The shop has a great selection of local products: olive oils and wines from different Croatian regions, traditional and home made brandies and liquours, delicacies made according to the centuries old recipies, hand made emboidery, and many authentic souvenirs which are actually made in Croatia by local people (not in China)!!

    What to buy: Croatia has a very old tradition of wine making and has very good wines made of their known grapes plavac mali, so buying a bottle of wine is a great choice for a good quality souvenir!!

    Algoritam and Algebra: Books, masks and more

    Gorgeous masks
    1 more image

    Look out for the shops called Algoritam and Algebra as you walk down Stradun. These are branches of Croatia's biggest bookstore and they carry a fantastic range of titles - paperback and hardback - in several languages, the best by far of any bookshop in the city (there are branches in Zagreb and Split also). You'll also find a small range of not-so-tacky-as-usual souvenirs. Really eye-catching is the display of masks - they are gorgeous, fabulous colours and designs - and a fraction of the price you'll pay at the other end of the Adriatic in Venice.

    What to pay: We paid about 180 kuna for a beautiful half-face cat mask. The price obviously varies according to how elaborate the one you choose is, but these are lovely and they certainly are well priced.

    En-lu: Tasting Dubrovnik

    by TheWanderingCamel Updated May 5, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    En-lu, on Ulitsa Od Puca (the street that leads out of Gunduliceva Square), is a great place to look for foodie souvenirs and gifts from Dubrovnik.

    What to buy: Avjar, roasted red peppers, aubergine garlic and oil, and maybe some chilli, is the flavour of Croatia in a jar.

    Everyone loves cookies and you'll find some Croatian specialities here, paprenjak - a biscuit flavoured with honey, walnuts and pepper, the recipe is reputed to be hundreds of years old - or perhaps you'd prefer seizis - nut coated biscuits with a strawberry jam filling.

    Air-dried ham (prsut) - if your home bases' quarantine regulations allow it, beautiful almond nougat, sour cherry syrup (maraschino cherries originated here in Dalmatia), dried fig jam - they're all typically Croatian, and delicious.

    Stalls by the harbour: Pretty handwork

    by TheWanderingCamel Updated Sep 7, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you've read any of my shopping tips on other pages , you'll know that I love textiles - they make ideal souvenirs - as well as usually being part of a long tradition of local customs, they're unbreakable, functional and often an important source of income for the women of the community.
    When I first went to Dubrovnik, nearly 40 years ago, there were women selling their handwork from stalls set up in the shade of the city's walls down near the harbour - I was delighted to see they're still there today.

    You'll also find stalls set up along the wall-top walkway.

    You should be able to pay in euros and US dollars as well as Croatian kunars.

    What to buy: Hand embroidered table linen is the main stock. It's great to see that it is local work, albeit obviously produced in some sort of organized cottage industry - everyone has much the same patterns and prices are pretty well the same, but it's attractively done and fairly priced (an embroideress will know exactly how many hours have gone into it)

    What to pay: I paid US$90 for a large table cloth with eight napkins - and more than happy with that price.

    It's a small artwork shop near Pile Gate off on a small alley along Stradun, very nice shop, lovely and cleverly displayed, nice friendly shop owner and reasonably priced. If you would like to get a little handcraft as souvenir, this is the place to visit.
