Opatija's Chocolate Festival
There is no sweeter holiday than this!

For several years now, at the beginning of December Opatija is traditionally dedicated to the sweet scent of chocolate. This sweet fantasy will once again become true in Opatija during the Chocolate Festival that will take place from the 2nd to the 4th of December.

Chocolate lovers will once again have the opportunity to sample a wide range of their favourite specialities or enjoy a variety of chocolate-based beauty treatments during the sixth Chocolate Festival, which this year takes place in Opatija from the 2nd to the 4th of December. Every year the festival has some special surprise to offer, but the taste that remains is always the same and delicious – sweet chocolate fragrance, spiced up with some special enjoyment and aromas.
During the festival, which will take place in numerous Opatija's hotels, cafés and wellness centres, visitors will have the chance to treat all the senses at various tastings, competitions, exhibitions, film screenings and other attractive events related to chocolate. As always, the festival will also include the making of the biggest chocolate cake. For those interested in some special experience, there is a series of sweet wellness packages such as exclusive chocolate body treatments, aroma hydro massage baths, facial treatments with chocolate-based products, and much more.
If you are a fan of chocolate, do not miss the chance to visit Opatija in December. In addition to a variety of chocolate products, the town's extensive gastronomic offer will include some special surprises, like classical specialities enriched with chocolate or imaginative combinations of various aromas.
