The Swiss Chocolate Named after the Croatian City Popular as Ever

ragusaOne of Switzerland’s most successful chocolate products, which is named after the Croatian city of Dubrovnik, is still going strong after seven decades…

For centuries now Cammile Bloch’s ‘Ragusa’, which is the Italian name for the city of Dubrovnik, has been a favourite of chocolate lovers in Switzerland and around the globe.

Company founder Cammile Bloch spent time on holiday in Dubrovnik in 1942 and obviously was impressed enough to name their latest product after the stone-walled city, writes Dubrovnik.net. (photo / Cammile Bloch)
