A day of, and for, CHOCOLATE and entertainment, a day for the biggest and sweetest chocolate event in Slovenia. If you intend to arrive at the festival by car, don't worry. There are a number of free car parks, the furthest of which is just 600 metres (5 minutes on foot) from the festival venue, to which you will be directed by traffic wardens. Tickets for the event, which cost EUR 5, as well as tasting coupons, will be available to purchase at the official entrance in Radovljica Park. Entrance is free of charge for children up to the age of 18. The tasting of chocolate and a whole host of entertainment will take place in three locations: Radovljica Park, Linhart Square and Radovljica Manor.
The Radovljica Chocolate Festival is the biggest of its kind in Slovenia
The Radovljica Chocolate Festival really is something special! There's ample chocolate, activities and offers for both days, so take your time, don't rush from one place to the next, enjoy the goings-on and explore all the options, as you are bound to find your favourite chocolate flavour combination or experience.
A wide range of excellent chocolate products and exceptional flavours every which way you look
Every year, in addition to the pleasant atmosphere of the festival, the programme features new entertainment and events, which are popular among everyone – the young, the old and, of course, all chocoholics! The festival is especially appealing to children, who, due to all the lively entertainment (children's workshops, dance performances, outdoor games, face painting, circus performers and other entertainment acts), often even forget about the chocolate!
After recharging your batteries (with chocolate!) on Saturday, we suggest that you make the most of Sunday morning by going for a walk on one of the theme trails in the surroundings or hike up to one of the viewpoints. The photos below are sure to provide you with some inspiration. Click here to find details of the various trails. But don't forget, that there will also be plenty of chocolate-related goings-on on Sunday. Check out the programme and plan an unforgettable weekend get-away.
