One thing Drniš is known for, above all, is its magnificent pršut (prosciutto).
The rich (and very addictive, might we add) flavour of Drniš pršut is enough to make almost anyone’s mouth water and keep coming back for more. A true taste of inland Dalmatia, the fifth edition of all things pršut in Drniš is taking place this weekend on Poljana.
As Sergej Novosel Vuckovic/Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 15th of August, 2018, this weekend in Drniš, the unmistakeable scent and taste of prsut will tease your senses as about thirty producers from not just the town itself, but from all over Croatia, as well as from neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro, are set to exhibit their highly-sought after meat delicacies at the International Festival of Prosciutto.
Organisers from the Association of Drniš pršut producers, the City of Drniš, and the Tourist Board have announced that on Saturday and Sunday, a massive 75 exhibitors are set to arrive in the town, and in addition to the pršut producers, there will also be and cheese makers, wine makers, honey producers, soparnik (Croatian savoury pie) producers, dessert makers, and producers selling local souvenirs present at the festival.
In addition to enjoying the pršut on offer from all over the country, as well as from two neighbouring countries, various cultural, entertainment, sport and other gastronomic amenities are also planned, all of which are set to take place on Poljana in the town, a location considered to be the best place for the hosting of such an event, its participants, and its numerous visitors.
Even an exhibition on all things pršut is planned under the name of The History of Drniš Pršut, organised by the Drniš City Museum. There will also be a concert held by Goran Karan, as well as several workshops and professional programs.
