Visit the sweetest event in Slovenian Istria

On 23rd and 24th September, Slovenian Istria will bask in sweet-coloured tones. Sweet Istria (Sladka Istra) is one of the largest events celebrating confectionery in Slovenia, representing a way to preserve and continue the sweet masterpieces of our ancestors while at the same time introducing new trends and modern and creative creations in Slovenian confectionery.

You can experience the sweets at stalls along "The Sweet Paths" in the streets of Koper in the city centre, where you can also sample and buy numerous desserts, sweet drinks and other sweet products from Slovenian Istria, other Slovenian regions and abroad. Each stall offers a number of sweet products that visitors can sample in exchange for purchased sampling coupons, or buy sweets to take home with them. Along with the core of the event, there will be sweet culinary workshops for children and adults, guided tours and lectures. Don’t miss the sweet weekend in Koper!
