Something for every taste

Each region has its own distinctive flavours. Numerous dishes, wines and produce have their own festivals. Visit some of them and sample a broad variety of local dishes, many of which are famed even beyond Slovenia’s borders. To give you a taste, we’ll provide a few tips about particularly interesting events, but remember that you can always find something that is particularly suited to your preferences.

Open Kitchen

Are you trying to decide where to take your loved ones, friends, or even business partners for lunch or dinner? Are their tastes and wishes too different to only go to one place? Then experience the diversity of Slovenian and world cuisine in the street! The Open Kitchen is the most popular culinary market in Slovenia, which will fascinate you with thousands of colours, aromas, and flavours. See you at Pogačar Square when temperatures get warm enough. Occasionally, the Open Kitchen opens its ‘doors’ in other towns, too. In October, don’t miss the Beer & Burger Fest.

Old Vine Festival

The oldest grapevine in the world grows in Maribor. It is a more-than-450-year-old Žametovka vine, which is shown great honour by the locals and visitors alike. It has its own museum, even its own anthem, and, of course, its own festival. It begins with a ceremonial harvesting of the Old Vine, and ends with the largest outdoor St Martin’s Celebration in Slovenia. During this time, you can meet the best winemakers of the Štajerska region and taste local specialities and innovative dishes made by local chefs.

Bogračfest

Bogračfest

When you visit Lendava, you just have to do at least two things – climb up the Vinarium Panoramic Tower, from which you will be able to see the territories of four countries, and taste the bograč stew. This traditional stew is so deeply rooted in the hearts of the people of Lendava that a special festival is devoted to it every year – the Bogračfest, held in late August within the Vinarium Festival.

A cosmopolitan experience at great restaurants

The kitchens of good restaurants in Slovenian towns and cities, hotels, and health resorts will treat you to Slovenian and international dishes. Slovenia is at the crossroads of influences from the Germanic and Romance worlds, Hungarian and Slavic cuisines, and has preserved its own original cuisine – what is more, Slovenian chefs are masters of European cuisine. If we add to this a pinch of innovation and creativity from the top Slovenian chefs, then you can be certain that your taste buds will receive special treatment.

Health resorts: Slovenian, cosmopolitan, and healthy

The menus at Slovenian natural health resorts offer guests locally produced food and typical Slovenian and local dishes. Special attention is also paid to healthy nutrition as the indispensable factor in a holistic approach to health and well-being.

Socially responsible catering establishments

Some of the more interesting places in Ljubljana with affordable prices are also establishments that are part of the new socially responsible movement. Gostilna dela (Working bistro) employs young people who have left school and Druga Violina provides job opportunities to persons with special needs. You can enjoy an affordable meal at both these places.
