Rakija is a traditional Croatian alcoholic drink, something like brandy or cognac - very strong but more fruity and fragrant. You can find a wide variety of species of rakila in Croatia: plum (it is called Slivovica), grape, apricot, pear, apple, honey, quince and even juniper.
Rakija is served in restaurants and sold in supermarkets. Locals often produce it themselves right at their homes - you can find these home-made products in the markets (but don't look for the sign - ask!)
it costs about 100 kuna per bottle.
