Opatija and chocolate have been closely linked for years thanks to the Chocolate Festival, which in 2021 celebrates its 15th anniversary. It’s the largest and oldest Croatian event dedicated to this wonderful food.
The ‘icing on the cake’ at the end of the year in Opatija will be this year’s Chocolate Festival. The fairy-tale atmosphere of the lavishly decorated Advent town will be the perfect backdrop for the excellent sweets and desserts that will be displayed in front of the Hotel Kvarner, the exclusive venue for the 15th Chocolate Festival. A festive occasion requires a festive ambience, which is why this anniversary edition of Opatija’s sweetest event will take place in front of the oldest hotel in Croatia.
From 3 to 5 December, visitors to the ‘Chocolate Magic’ fair will be able to taste the irresistible delicacies offered by about twenty producers from Croatia and abroad, and also to experience many sweet surprises prepared by the organisers. It will be a unique opportunity to enjoy one-of-a-kind desserts that, except in the speciality stores of craft chocolatiers, can only be purchased at this fair.
At the ‘Chocolate Magic’ fair, each manufacturer presents their best produce, while an attractive programme, including workshops, lectures, tastings, and concerts related to chocolate, takes place in various hotels and restaurants in Opatija.
Don’t miss out on discovering some brand-new chocolate delicacies and fantastic flavours. Indulge in the pleasures of chocolate and enjoy the elegance of the ‘chocolate town’ of Opatija!
