The first culinary travelogue around Croatia, Croatia’s Finest, is currently airing in over 90 countries on the National Geographic Channel.

The show, which features UK MasterChef Dhruv Baker presenting culinary, cultural, historical and general tourist attractions around Croatia, this week starts airing again on the National Geographic Channel Asia.

The 20-episode series, where Baker discovers the very best of Croatian cuisine around the country, this week starts again in over 90 countries, including China, Japan, India, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, UAE and others.


When the show was first broadcast back in October last year to a potential audience of over half a billion people, it was one of the most watched shows on the National Geographic Channel Asia channel.

“We are very proud that our travelogue had its premiere on the National Geographic Channel and it was among the TOP 10 watched shows. After a two month break, the National Geographic Channel has started again to broadcast the travelogue which does not happen often. This is a huge success which confirms interest in the show from viewers has been big”, Tadija Kolovrat, head of Croatia’s Finest production team said.

In the series Baker visits the capital Zagreb, and heads through Opatija, Istria, down the coast via Zadar to the beautiful island of Brač.


Each episode highlight is when Dhruv cooks outdoors in the most spectacular scenery, such as at the Roman amphitheater in Pula, and at one of Croatia’s most beautiful beachs, Zlatni Rat on Brač.

The show is a great promotion for Croatia on the Asian market and will be shown over the next three years on the National Geographic Channel. It has also been broadcast on the British channel Holiday & Cruise TV- Sky Channel.

Besides Asia and the UK, Croatia’s Finest will soon start to air in all of the Russian speaking territories.

Negotiations for Croatia’s Finest to be broadcast in more than 15 European countries, as well as in America and Brazil are in the final stages.
