6 incredible things to do while visiting Croatia on a luxury yacht

sweet chestnuts

For festival and food lovers

Lovran claims to grow the best sweet chestnuts (marundi) in the world and over three weekends in October this delicacy is celebrated in a gastronomic event that starts in Lovran and spreads to the adjacent villages. You can consume chestnuts in an infinite variety of forms –- encased in pastries, cakes and sweets, stuffed in turkey breast, garnishing steak as a sauce, and creaming a flaming crepe to name a few.

The atmosphere is jolly with local music and folk dancing, all washed down with local mead and young wine. Those who have overindulged may choose to appease their guilt by joining in a series of sporting tournaments -– lawn bowls, cycling, mountaineering and an ‘Adventurous Trekking Race’ are all part of the programme of activities. The next festival runs from October 8-23 2016.
