Shopping is a pleasant and leisurely experience in the Old Town with its tourist-orientated shops offering local crafts, Croatian wine and chocolate, Bajedera, Croatian designer boutiques and English books. Although there is no one street of luxury shops, there are designer boutiques along the Placa. Head for the myriad narrow lanes to the north and south of the Old Town where you will find gorgeous handmade jewellery of filigree gold and silver.
Shop hours are 09.00-20.00, seven days a week in summer, shorter hours in winter.

Editor's Tip: Feel free to barter at street markets!
As at 1 January 2010, Croatia’s VAT legislation changed to the EU’s VAT laws. VAT of 23% is charged on most purchases and services and is included in the price. A reduced rate of 10% is levied on accommodation services. Visitors can reclaim tax on purchases costing over 500 kunas on departure. Ask for a VAT form at the shop where the purchase is made. This should be filled out and stamped immediately. The tax receipt must be produced to the Customs officials at point of departure.<.p>
A VAT refund in kunas can be obtained within 6 months of purchase either from the shop when the VAT is refunded immediately, or by posting the verified receipt back to the shop with the account number into which the refund should be deposited. If goods were paid for by credit card, that account will be reimbursed.
