Fritule and kroštule

In February when Istrian and Dalmatian towns begin the party of carnival parades, behind almost every corner the unmissable aromas of carnival pastries - fritule and kroštule - begin to waft. Also known throughout the coast as krostule, frustule, hrostule and krustavice (according to the Latin crustulum, which means a cake or sweet), kroštule are golden-yellow sweet snacks which disappear as quickly as they appear.
