Cherries or flowers this weekend?

The 53rd Cherry Festival in Goriška Brda

Although Goriška Brda are mostly spoken about at the time of harvesting, also springtime has its own special charm. First with blossoming cherries, then with the tasty fruits. 

The Cherry Festival, which takes place this weekend, is the biggest and most attention-grabbing cultural and tourist event in Goriška Brda. It is visited by over 30,000 visitors from Slovenia and abroad. The event (this year already the 53rd in a row) includes a number of ethnological, cultural and sports features, which offer entertainment for all generations.

The main theme of the event is the so-called Queen of Brda, the red cherry. A number of different products made of cherries, as well as fresh cherries, are exhibited and available to purchase during the weekend. But that is not all: numerous winemakers open their wine cellars and offer you an unforgettable wine experience as well.

13th International Wild Flower Festival

The 13th International Wild Flower Festival, which takes place at various locations in Bohinj, 24 May – 9 June, is a great example of how one can preserve the natural heritage and the same time still integrate it into the tourist offer.
