39th MARUNADA

Marunada is the greatest yearly event in Lovran. 
Beacuse of special climate, the Lovran's chestnuts are one of the most tasteful chestnuts in the World, 
and this is why this event is so special.  Marunada traditionally begins mid-October in Lovran and then 
migrates to the neighboring villages of Liganj and Dobreć in the weekends to follow.

15-17 October, Marunada Festival, Lovran, Croatia
Blessed with a mild microclimate, the town of Lovran on Croatia's Opatija riviera is known for the 
abundance of sweet chestnuts, or maruni, that grow in its hinterlands. In mid-October, the town 
celebrates its prized harvest with a festival which begins in Lovran and moves to the neighbouring 
villages of Liganj and Dobre on the subsequent weekends. The town's narrow paved streets are filled 
with stalls offering various maruni creations – from maruni honey to ice cream– and restaurants lay on 
special menus, with dishes such as rump steak with maruni sauce and crêpes with maruni cream.
