Pre-wedding diet plan for bride and groom to look fit

The Dalmatian cuisine’s highlights are its simplicity and naturalness. It’s an example of great care about what we take into the body to have longevity, energy, and a slim line. Local recipes are passed between generations for centuries and defended with great pride. Attributing epithets like easily digested, low-fat, moderately spicy, and ‘boiled’ to a local cuisine are typical for Dalmatian cuisine.

In the vicinity of Villa Vinea, there are several taverns, serving traditional dalmatian food. One of them is eco ethno village Škopljanci in a traditional rustic ambiance and the other popular place is Tavern Snig. If it’s true that ‘love goes through the stomach’, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with the tastes and flavors of traditional Dalmatian cuisine!

Many brides-to-be have certain pre-wedding fitness goals, yet only pursue them seriously within weeks before the wedding. Start as early as you can, explore hiking trails in inland Dalmatia, and hike to Mount Vilaja. The track length is 4,5 km and the track climb 350 m. Vilaja is the Dalmatian border mountain between Šibenik-Knin and Split-Dalmatia County. It rises above Prapatnice, a settlement located along the Borajska road, in the hinterland of Trogir 10 km northwest. It stretches in the direction of the northwest-southeast Dinaric mountain.

Add a touch of local culture to your wedding ceremony

Music is a crucial element at a Dalmatian wedding and the best musicians get sometimes booked a year in advance. During the pre-festivities, guests can enjoy traditional songs, local food, and the strong Croatian spirit ‘rakija’.
