November 22, 2018 – Only 15 days until Opatija’s 13th Chocolate Festival! Fancy some Kvarner gourmet? Chocolate lovers rejoice! We are delighted to announce that the three-day annual chocolate festival held in Opatija, the Croatian capital of chocolate, will traditionally take place the first weekend of December, starting on Friday 7th at 2:00 PM.
For the 13th year in a row, the sweetest Croatian festival offers its visitors a chance to taste and discover the amazing flavors of both domestic and international chocolates, as the festival-goers get to indulge not only in sweets and desserts but also in a number of other chocolate-flavored gourmet dishes, liqueurs, cocktails, hot toddies… And of course, don’t forget the vino! Here is a good rule of thumb: try pairing white chocolate with a sweet bubbly, whereas more full-bodied red wines with go hand in hand with richer, darker chocolates.

Once you’re done stuffing your face with all things chocolate – there’s plenty more to do! Opatija’s favorite festival features workshops and live concerts at the Juraj Šporer Arts Pavilion, chocolate expo and fair at the Gervais Center, Choco & Coffee day at the market, etc. This year’s festival includes even a number of different activities for the youngest visitors such as The Nutcracker gingerbread workshop, Santa Claus Post Office, cake pop workshop, and many others.
