Tucepi Travel Guide
Tucepi Local History
Tucepi has a long turbulent history tracing back to the Prehistoric period (Illyrians, 2000 BC - 1st cent. AD).It is believed that the Venetian doge Pietro Candiano I, victim of a battle against Neretvanians on September 18, 887 was buried in the local churchyard. Roman tegulae have been found in abundance in the area, as have many important antique and medieval artefacts dated from the 10th to the 17th century.
Tucepi Restaurants and Bars
Typical Dalmatian cuisine with strong Italian influences to be had here. Try the delicious "Dalmatinski prsut a paski sir" an air dried tasty cured ham - quite a mouthful! This is typically served with olives and sheep's milk cheese specially brought in from Prag. A hint of Turkey detected in the popular pork kebabs (raznjici) and Hungerian paprika also pops up in some recipes. A typical Dalmatian dessert would be Rozata, a caramel dessert livened up with a tot of local liqueur.
Sumica - Put Firula- for seafood delight take a drive up to Split for a treat of scampi and fine wine, serving between 9am to midnight.
