Opatija and chocolate have been inextricably linked for years thanks to the Chocolate Festival event, the largest and oldest Croatian event dedicated to this irreplaceable food, which in 2021 celebrates its jubilee, reports Turističke Priče.
Sugar at the end of the year will bring Opatija a new edition of the Chocolate Festival. The fairy-tale atmosphere of the luxuriously decorated Advent city will be a great backdrop for top-quality desserts that will return to the Crystal Hall of the Kvarner Hotel exclusively for the 15th Chocolate Festival. The festive occasion also requires a festive ambience, so the jubilee of the sweetest Opatija event will be celebrated under the famous crystal chandeliers of the oldest Croatian hotel.

From December 3 to 5, visitors to the “Chocolate Magic” fair will be able to taste the irresistible delicacies of twenty domestic and foreign producers, but also experience many more “sweet surprises” prepared by the organizers. It will be a unique opportunity to enjoy the unique desserts that, except in the specialty stores of the present “craft” chocolatiers, can only be purchased at this fair.
Romantic winter evenings in Advent Opatija will be sweetened by the largest and longest-running Croatian event dedicated to chocolate, and hedonistic pleasure in divine flavors will be complemented by a special program at the Opatija chocolate factory Milenij Choco, as well as specially designed chocolate desserts in many hotels and restaurants. This sweet “lifestyle” will not only stay on the palate, but you will be able to enjoy chocolate with your whole body because this food will “interfere” with the treatments of Opatija’s spa & wellness centers.
An opulent stretch of Austro-Hungarian finery on the beautiful Kvarner coast, Opatija was Croatia’s first-ever tourist destination. As popular now as it always was, it’s easy to see why.
