Jaškovo near Ozalj, the small central Croatian town which entered the Guinness Book of Records this year for the world’s longest strudel, is continuing the story of the favourite pastry…
A festival dedicated to the strudel, ŠtrudlaFest, will be held on 4 September 2016 in Jaškovo near Ozalj. Over 30 strudel producers will make various types of strudels which will also be for sale on the day.
There will be a full entertainment programme on the day also, including a display of straw sculptures from artist Nikola Feller and an appearance by TV cooking show ‘3,2,1- kuhaj’ winners Filipa Sorko and Petra Egić.
