On 20 and 21 September you may spoil your palate with patisseries again on Sweet Istria, the 6th international festival of patisseries and other sweet products. The LifeClass Hotels will be presenting their sweet offer again. In the past years, our hotels won five gold medals for our queen cakes.
The Sweet Istria festival is the biggest event of its kind in Slovenia. This festival represents a way of preserving and continuing our ancestors’ tradition of creating sweet masterpieces. In addition, it introduces new forms of contemporary and imaginative creations in the field of confectioner’s and the production of sweet products in Slovenia. At the same time, foreign sweet products are also presented at the festival. Divided into thematic sets, sweet products from Slovenian Istria, Slovenia and abroad are presented and sold along “sweet trails” that lead visitors past numerous producers in Koper’s city centre. Each producer presents several types of sweet products that visitors may taste in exchange for a tasting voucher. Furthermore, they may also buy larger quantities of sweet products and take them home.
Apart from a diverse offer at points of sale, Sweet Istria also offers workshops, professional guidance and lectures, a rich cultural programme as well as numerous accompanying events. The most important part of the festival in professional terms is the Most Original Istrian Patisseries competition, the Muscat of Sweet Istria and the Best Cake of Sweet Istria. Moreover, the traditional Ex Tempore Sweet Istria is another attraction of the festival.
