It is a town that, in addition to Jelenov Greben, Olimje Monastery, and thermal waters, is also famous for the Olimje Chocolate Factory, which transferred its family tradition from Vienna to Podčetrtek, and today offers a wide range of handmade chocolate products such as pralines, bars, and chocolates.




The charm of making chocolate desserts did not remain only at the factory but also spread to small family businesses, which for the 9th year in a row will present the best of the sweetest. There will be various types and flavors that will go perfectly with the wines at as many as 55 stands.
