WHY A CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL, IN PARTICULAR, IN RADOVLJICA?

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.
