15 most famous national dishes of European cuisine
One of the ways to get to know the culture of a country and a nation is to stop by a national restaurant and try a dish that is specific to that climate. These are the best national dishes of European cuisine. Some will be reminded of a better period, and some will be included in the wish list of these places for some future trips.
1. Pierogy in Poland
There are so many reasons to visit Poland, but "try pierogi" should be at the top of your list. These little dumplings can be filled with literally anything. The classic version includes potatoes and cheese, meat and cabbage or just vegetables. They are often served topped with sour cream and fried onions or pork. They are also popular as a dessert, stuffed with fruit and sweet cheese.
2. Delicious pasteis de nata (Portuguese dessert)
Can be found all over the world, but no one can make you exactly as they are served in Portuguese pastry shops and restaurants. These golden brown pastries are filled with caramelized cream, while the shell on the outside entices you, thin enough to delight every palate when combined with sweets. Order it with strong black coffee.
3. Canelbullar in Sweden
"Canelbullar" literally translates as "cinnamon rolls" and we can promise you that they are better than any you have ever tried before.

These rolls are most enjoyed when they are fresh from the oven, and can be found in most Swedish bakeries. You will be able to smell them for a mile.

6. Arancini in Italy
Whatever you try in Italy, you won't go wrong. This is a country of gourmets and the best European cuisine. But before you make a plan for pasta and pizza, think about a modest arancina.

Arancini is often eaten as a quick snack or as a lunch on the go - a favorite meal of students who do not have a big budget.
7. Bocadillo de jamon in Spain
It looks like a normal ham sandwich, but never underestimate a good bocadillo de jamon.

Some variations may also contain manchego cheese, peppers, tomatoes or olives, but even the most classic ones are delicious.

Two words: melted cheese. This dish is named after the Swiss cheese raclette, which is melted in a pan or outside the crust itself. It is usually served on potatoes with pickles and onions or with bread if eaten as a street food on the go.
15. Smørrebrød in Denmark

The Danes use a knife and fork to ensure that the dressings remain intact. In fact, there is a whole social ethic of how smørrebrød is eaten, how it is composed and the order in which it is eaten.
