Radovljica Chocolate Festival

Alert for all with a sweet tooth: this weekend, 12–14 April, the 8th edition of the Radovljica Chocolate Festival will take place. Spoiling of taste buds guaranteed!

Radovljica Chocolate Festival

In Slovenia, Radovljica is almost synonymous with chocolate, as it is home to the largest Slovenian chocolate factory as well as a number of smaller family chocolatiers that produce handmade chocolates and truffles. Their slogan, 'Honestly Sweet', derives from the area's long tradition of chocolate-making and this is also why the decision for organizing a chocolate festival was taken.

The first festival took place in 2012 in the old town centre of Radovljica. From the very outset, the festival's organisers had a desire to make the festival an annual event that lures visitors from all over Slovenia and further afield. 

Their wish has come true: this weekend, 12–14 April, the 8th edition of the festival will take place. Chocolatiers from throughout Slovenia will exhibit at the festival and numerous accompanying events will take place, among them also the superb, six-course Three Chefs Dinner at Vila Podvin, featuring three renowned Slovenian chefs: Jorg Zupan, Uroš Štefelin and Igor Jagodic. The main theme of the dinner will of course be chocolate.

The festival in the spotlight also in the international media

The event will be visited also be some renowned journalists and bloggers from abroad, who are currently in Slovenia on press trips organized by the Slovenian Tourist Board:

  • Carley Thornell, Improper Bostonian, from the USA
  • Chris Christensen, Amateur Traveler, an award-winning travel blog and podcast from the USA
  • The filming crew of EITB, Basque Public Radio and tv, with their show Chiloe
