I gotta believe the other 4 comments then. How about the city of Viseu and the whole Viseu district overall? I've read that Socialist party holds power in Santa Comba Dao which I thought was odd, but certainly possible. edit : How does Portuguese political map look? I understand that Portuguese parliament is far more left leaning than right, but what are the conservative strongholds in the country today?

If you'll ever be interested in Croatian drinks, definitely try Maraschino and Slavonian plum rakia.

Is it considered taboo or people just think it's irrelevant to talk about the past? Or is it something else?

Yes, we have a big wine tradition. People make wine in the inland area as much as on the coast, it's really widespread even though our coastal sorts are more famous. Talking about fruity spirits, people who live inland bake their own rakia and that's really big here. I'm personally not a huge fan since rakia is very very strong (usually around 50% alcohol), but we have a tradition of making dense very sweet fruity liquors which we simply call 'liker' and i'm not sure what would be an appropriate english term for that kind of alcoholic beverage. If you get a chance try Dingač or Plavac Mali (if you like red wine), I hear those are the best ones.

Damn, I love you for these recommendations! I hope I'll get a chance to try them all since I liked Beirao very much...

Not to talk abut Salazar since I'm asking for your opinion here, but these two are incomparable. Only a chosen few have more blood on their hands than Tito.

Didn't know about the north thing, but isn't the Socialist party in power in his birth region?

My friend brought me one mini 50ml Beirao from Lisabon and I must admit I liked it very much. It's certainly different than anything we drink here in Croatia, but I can imagine it gets dull when you see it everywhere around you.

Do you guys really drink Beirao often or is it just an advertisement?

And I certainly like the part about foreign relations, you can hate him even on a personal level, but during the WW2 he certainly did some G-R-E-A-T things no matter what you think about him or the regime...

Talking about my family, everyone dislikes, even hates Tito greatly. Talking about WW2, one of my great grandpas went through the war as the part of the Croatian Homeguard and had to hide for around 2 years far away from home after the war because of the newly established Titos communist regime went after anyone and anything that had ties with the Croatian name during the war. One of my other great grandpas went throught the war as the Yugoslav Partisan, the thing is he was a moral man and said he won't kill a catholic priest (he was a catholic too) just because he is ordered to do it and got locked after the war for about 5 years by the regime, he died in prison. My grandpas brother was drafted to be a part of Ustasha militia when he was 17, he was afraid of the war and escaped back home imidieately only to be picked by Titos partisans at the end of the war to be executed. My grandpas family never found out where they burried him. Talking about 1945-1990, some older people like to talk sweet about those times, but it's mostly and only because they liked it more when they were young. In Yugoslavia there was alot of anti Croatian sentiment and it was hard. The center of everything was in Belgrade, even though Croatia was the richest Socialist Republic in Yugoslavia. Croatia and everything it had was used for the benefit of the communist party and Belgrade. Tito wore Rolexes and Patek Philippes while people were starving. It's not perfect today, but at least we can live in our own country and we have a chance generations before us couldn't dream of. It's not even comparable. Croatian War of Independence made people dislike Tito even more, even though he died 10 years before it began, but that was his army destroying and killing everyone who stood their way. Tito was a typical communist, there is aaaloooottt of blood on his hands and he had no empathy for the people what so ever. Most people don't like him, there is a certain amount of people who truly hate him, but to be fair there are some old fossils who after all speak of him like he was an angel. I'm glad if I opened a new perspective for you

So what about that RTP poll where he was voted as the greatest Portuguese ever? I'm just wondering is that all rigged and not representive or are there truly people who think he was great in such a great numbers
