Marunada Chestnut Festival

Throughout October: The most famous chestnut festival in Croatia takes place each October in the town of Lovran near Opatija. Maruni are a sweet chestnut grown in the area; larger than the common chestnut and the skin peels a lot easier. Due to their superb quality they have been an important export since the 17th Century. During the festival everything is dedicated to this chestnut: sample roasted chestnuts, cakes pancakes and puree washed down with some local wine, or try Medica, a honey brandy that’s also made in the area. While the festival is on there will be additional entertainment by folklore groups and a packed programme of cultural events to enjoy.
