The best chocolate event in Slovenia

The history of Honestly Sweet Radovljica is strongly connected to town’s rich tradition of chocolate. The sweetest event of the year, the Chocolate Festival, takes place in Linhart Square and in Radovljica Mansion. The Festival is held annually in April – after Easter and before the May Day Holidays. This year you can enjoy chocolate treats from 21st to 23rd April.

All of the products are available for tasting. Since 2013 this has been available through the purchase of tasting coupons, while products are also available for purchase from participating chocolatiers. The accompanying programme is also based on chocolate. In the Mansion, chocolatiers demonstrate the creation of their products, while there is a full line-up of cookery shows, workshops for children and adults on the theme of chocolate, and street performers in the Linhart square. Every year there are also some new additions to the Festival.

Chocolate has been present in Radovljica and its surroundings for a long time. The region is home to one of the first, and currently the most renowned, chocolate brand in Slovenia, Gorenjka. In 1922, the Slovene industrialist, Adolf Zavrtanik from Trieste, established a family-owned chocolate production company in the town of Lesce, which subsequently gained recognition with the Gorenjka trademark.  The first Chocolate Festival was organised in the town of Radovljica on the 90th anniversary of Gorenjka factory.
