Popular confectioners Kraš dates right back to the Zagreb-born Union chocolatiers of the early twentieth century, a company that supplied chocolates to the royal courts of Vienna and Budapest. These days, Kraš chocolate bars are a common sight in Croatian homes. The company's product range spans from fancy nougat creations to childhood favourites like Animal Kingdom (Životinjsko Carstvo) and their classic Dorina bars.
Kraš has re-opened its flagship store as a swish new bonbonnière in time for Easter. Located near the Flower Square, the chocolate shop has been based in downtown Zagreb since 1980.
Besides the boxes of old favourites stocking the displays, Kraš has considerably upped its chocolate game. Chocolatiers are producing hand-made pralines and 'shattered' chocolate bars in different flavours every week. Check in store or on the website for details
