Reason #150: you can’t take your gun into a supermarket
Whether you see this as a pro or a con of living on Brač, there it is, you can’t do your grocery shopping while carrying a gun. At least not at the Tommy supermarket in Supetar.
Foreigners are probably shocked to see this sign, but Croatians are quite used to it, even though carrying guns is not common enough these days to justify the need for such a warning sign. It’s thanks to the war of ’91-’95 when many people owned guns (no longer the case) that we now have this odd rule as a remnant of that time.
My favorite is definitely the gun/ice-cream combo that can be seen inside the Zagreb railway station.
