In the land of Croats, in which lamb from the spit is considered a national dish, every region of Croatia boasts of its own lamb and considers it the best. The people of Lika are proud of their Lika lamb, the Dalmatians value especially the lamb from Boraja near Šibenik, further South they praise the Klis and the Sinj lamb, and in the Northern Croatian sea regions the people of the island of Krk boast of the lamb from Krk as the best, while those from Cres boast of the lamb from Cres. Everyone praises its own and in some way everyone is right. Why? Simply because Croatia is a small country of huge geo-morphological, geographical and climatic contrasts, which has a major impact on the peculiarity of the grass and herbs that the animals feed on.
