It’s time for another Štrudlafest, the sweetest festival that delights thousands of people every year, and is dedicated to one of the most delicious and beloved desserts – strudel.

This year, the sweet party starts on the first weekend in September, from September 2 to 4, to be exact. The village of Jaškovo, located between Ozalj and Karlovac, will once again become a unique combination of gastronomy, sports, culture, art and entertainment for young and old.

Of course, all this with delicious strudels, but this year there will be more of them than ever.

It’s hard to imagine, but this year there are more than a hundred flavours of this dessert waiting for visitors, and there will be many other homemade products that will perfectly please all palates.

Visitors will also find gastro workshops with ambassadors and other strudel masters, and a special attraction this year will be Tata Marta’s house and Tomislav Špiček’s gastro show, and they will also have guests from as far away as Nepal.
