Itinerary Details

The Croation speciality Peka is a delicious option for lunch or dinner and, as this tour is flexible, you get to choose what time you eat! 

Named for the bell-like dome that meat and fresh veggies are cooked under, Peka is a hearty and delicious meat and vegetable dish. It may seem simple at first glance but cooking it requires great skill and experience. The domed lid, shaped like a cupola, can be made of metal or cast iron, but true connoisseurs prefer earthenware. Food is cooked underneath the Peka in a fireproof pot under the coals or directly on a stone slab.

Food cooked under Peka, be it in a fireproof pot under the coals or directly on a stone slab, is a hearty meat and vegetable dish. Usually veal, lamb or yearling beef covered with potatoes and other vegetables.

And of course, best enjoyed with a fantastic local red miljas wine!
