Illok, Croatia’s easternmost town which is situated in the Srijem region, will be hosting the cuisine and wine event Ilok – Delicium Mundi on July 2 and 3, 2021.
Ilok – Delicium Mundi is an important event for the development of the tourist offer of the city of Ilok, at the same time Srijem and Slavonia, which positions itself in cultural and rural tourism on the map of continental Croatia and improves the promotion of Croatian cuisine and wine.
This year, in the desire for a new sustainable development of the event, after being held continuously for four years, a new name was chosen Ilok – Delicium Mundi. The modernised edition will take place on the first weekend of July in the atrium of the Museum of the City of Ilok, the restored Odescalchi Castle, starting on Friday at 8 p.m.
So far, a wine list from the Danube regions has been presented in the program, this year, due to pandemic measures, winemakers from Ilok will gather to offer wine tasting. There is also a gastronomic table with local caterers where visitors can taste famous indigenous dishes.
In the cultural part of the programme, with the performance of singer Marko Kutlić on July 3, young people from Ilok also participate, revitalising the heritage in costumes of famous historical figures of Ilok and reading poetry on the theme of wine, Danube and Ilok.
During the event, which is also of a humanitarian nature, symbolic donations will be collected to help the Gusić family from Mošćenice near Petrinja, whose house was damaged in the earthquake.
The city of Ilok and its citizens have been helping the Gusić family with a series of humanitarian actions since December 2020.
