Museum - Live Gingerbread Workshop
Linhartov trg 2 4240 Radovljica
In the cellar of Radovljica's Restaurant Lectar
traditional slovenian gingerbread (lect)hearts are made. The in-house gingerbread workshop serves as a live museum. You can observe the skilled staff produce little sweet surprises and presents, honouring age-old recipes and using antique tools.
The house's first gingerbread workshop, as well as a mead and candle workshop, date back to 1766, while in 1822 the owners also opened a restaurant which acquired its name, 'Pri Lectarju', from the trade practised in the house. The gingerbread trade declined thereafter, but the restaurant and its name were retained.
In 2006, the restaurant owners revived the gingerbread trade with a gingerbread workshop held in the vaulted cellar which serves as a live museum today. The worksho is equipped with antique tools. Opening Hours:
You can visit the workshop and listen to the explanations provided on the production and history of the trade during the restaurant’s opening hours.
