Croatian pub quiz scene has risen in popularity over the last few years. No matter what interests you in life, having fun over a few drinks in a nice cozy pub, while competing with other teams who came to the quiz for the same reason as you, to have fun, is an amazing experience. Also, we must be honest, people love to compete too, and by allowing them to compete against other people who love to compete and see who is better, that can be really exciting.
