What you'll do
If you ask any local what you should try in Croatia, they will definitely say “burek”. While original “burek” is made with ground meat, today you can find many varieties – with cheese (“sirnica”), potato (“krumpiruša”), spinach etc. And why would you only taste it, when you can watch and learn how it’s made. My dear friend Sabira has been making burek her whole life. In this class, Sabira will show you the whole process of how to make burek. You will get an opportunity to learn and assist in making it, and of course to taste it when it’s all done.

Hi, my name is Marija. I’m the owner of a small hostel in Zagreb city center – Zagreb Speeka Hostel. When I decided to open a hostel, the idea was to provide the guests with different types of experiences. I wanted to capture the spirit of old Zagreb and how the locals used to live. So, the interior of the hostel is a collage of traditional and modern elements. But I didn’t want to stop there. I want to offer my guests, and not only hostel customer, but whoever is interested, unique experiences of how local Croatians live. Thus, the idea was born – show people how one of the traditional pastries are made.
