General Country Information
The Republic of Tunisia (do not get confused, because the name of the country and the name of its capital are the same – “Republic of Tunisia, the capital is Tunisia”) is located in Africa, washed by the Mediterranean Sea from the north-eastern border. The climate is tropical Mediterranean along the coast. Thanks to this, the summer heat is easier to carry, even though the thermometer columns in July show + 33 ° C.
The best time to visit Tunisia is the whole spring and the beginning of summer, as well as the velvet season in September and October. From Kiev to Tunisia (the airport in the city of Monastir) fly about 3.5 hours.
What to try in Tunisia?
There is also a lesson for gastrotourism lovers. Pay attention to these traditional dishes:
Shorba – vegetable tomato soup, which is prepared with the addition of lamb, chicken or fish. Served with lots of pepper! Suitable for thrill-seekers.
Couscous is one of the most important dishes of Tunisia. In order for it to get its own special taste, it is prepared in special pots with a double bottom. From below, tender lamb or chicken melting in the mouth is prepared, and from above – cereal.
Brik – thin triangles from the special Malsuki test. Inside is a filling of finely chopped lamb, vegetables and eggs.
Tajine – casseroles made from lamb, potatoes and eggs, with the addition of cinnamon and coriander. The dish has a very interesting taste.
Tunisia’s signature traditional drink is green tea, which is brewed with mint and pine nuts. Despite the fact that the majority of Tunisians profess Islam, they produce excellent wines and date liqueur Tiburin.
