Invitation to sample a 10-meter cherry strudel

If you are keen on cherries, we have great news for you: between the 7th and the 15th of June, restaurants in Lovran will offer cakes made of delicious, highly appraised Lovran cherries.

The 8th Cherry Festival is a traditional event during which eating establishments in Lovran, a renowned holiday resort near Opatija, offer dishes made of these delicious fruits. The closing ceremony will include a very special event on Lovran's main square – sampling of a ten-metre cherry strudel, prepared by skilled confectioners from the Hotel Excelsior.
Lovran cherries are similar to the Lambert variety, renowned for it quality, juiciness and rich taste, particularly distinguished for their size, colour and sweetness. In addition to cherries, the area of Lovran is also known for sweet chestnuts, locally called maruni. A festival dedicated to these delicious fruits takes place every autumn.
