Tastings of the chocolate treats takes place in exchange for tasting coupons.
The three day festival features a diverse entertainment programme suitable for all generations. There are workshops and shows for children, concerts, cookery shows, exhibitions, and street artists parading through the town. Every year visitors are delighted by the festival's new features. In the past this has included, among others, the Guinness World Record for the largest (by area) chocolate bar, a chocolate fashion show and a chocolate roulette wheel.
Chocolate has been a feature of the Radovljica area for a long time. With roots dating back to 1922, Gorenjka is the most well-known Slovenian brand of chocolate and it originates here. In addition to Gorenjka in the Radol'ca area there are now two local chocolatiers, the Molinet House of Chocolate, and Martisan Chocolate.
Climb aboard for a nostalgic train journey to Radovljica where you will find stalls laden with all kinds of chocolate and a packed entertainment programme.
