The gastronomic event is dedicated to a local pastry called štrudla (strudel).
Director of the Regional Tourist Board of Karlovac County, Željko Fanjak, said at a press conference in Rastoke near Slunj last Thursday that in order to extend the tourist season 40 hotels, restaurants and family-run farms had joined the event.
So far, we have had about 20 restaurants, and now we have 40 in 12 of the total of 22 local government units, so in addition to the usual tourist attractions, tourists will be able to experience authentic local cuisine, said Fanjak.
Karlovac County Prefect Martina Furdek Hajdin said that the Week of Štrdula was an event dedicated to the aroma of tradition.
