Pop the Big Question in Croatia
Looking for a unique and creative way to propose? We have some ideas on how to ask, “Hoćeš li se udati za mene?”
The way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach
Continental and Mediterranean cuisine come together in Istria: fish, crabs, seafood, maneštra od bobići (the famous minestrone with sweet corn), pasta with fabulous local truffles, game sauce, goulash, pork loin and sausages, wild asparagus omelet, and cheese to name a few! Start with an aperitif of mistletoe, rue, or honey schnapps, enjoy your meal and make room for a sweet dessert ending with kroštule, krafi, or fritule fried dough pastries.
TOP TIP: In winter, the Shellfish Days event is held from February 16 until March 23. During this period, one can sample the finest Istrian seafood recipes featuring scallops, mussels, warty venus (a saltwater clam), Noah’s Ark shells, black scallops, and oysters. Without any fear of exaggeration, it is safe to say that diners will experience the special seafood taste only available from one of the cleanest seas in the world, complemented by superb Istrian wines and the best olive oil to be found anywhere.

Foolproof your proposal with a magical sunset in Zadar
Zadar is known for the Roman and Venetian ruins of its peninsular old town, including several Venetian gates in the city walls. Surrounding the Roman-era Forum are the 11th-century St. Mary’s Convent, with religious art dating to the 8th century; the grand, 12th-century St. Anastasia’s Cathedral; and the round, 9th-century pre-Romanesque Church of St. Donat.
Punta is a sandy beach, rich in the sand on the shore and in the sea. It is ideal for families with children. The beach is partly paved and partly shingle and it is surrounded by pine trees whose shade gives shelter from the most intense heat. Active travelers will find many activities in the vicinity, such as a sailing school, diving, horse riding, beach volleyball, and bike paths, among many others.
Helicopter ride to love!
Galešnjak is located in the Pašman channel of the Adriatic, between the islands of Pašman and the town of Turanj on mainland Croatia. Fly over the island and propose directly above a heart – it’s nature’s own romantic touch! It is one of the world’s few naturally occurring heart-shaped islands.
Kidnap your Bride!
In certain parts of Croatia, it is a custom for the groom and his peers to literally kidnap the maiden from her home. Of course, the whole event is comical and can include toy weaponry, while the means of escape might be bicycles or even donkeys. The custom is very old, and surprisingly, there were cases when young girls decided to be the kidnappers of their beloved males, especially if these were not keen to enter marital life.
If you want to add a layer of fun to your proposal, we can stage a hilarious kidnapping scene. Once you are alone in the hideout of your choice, explain that according to ancient Croatian traditions, you two are now entitled to marriage!
