Ilirska Bistrica and the surrounding villages are known for hospitality – even legends speak of it. All the goodies that grow here are carefully prepared by local masters of cuisine! Forests are full of mushrooms and berries, ancient orchards still rule the Brkini hills, and fields and gardens ripen in the sun. Walnuts, hazelnuts and chestnuts are abundant, and hard-working bees collect excellent honey in the pristine flowering meadows.
Spend a couple of star-studded nights on a farm, at a family inn or in a mountain hut high above the land. Indulge in the pleasures of top-quality home cooking: venison and lamb, exceptional fresh fish, the famous štruklji and other desserts ... finish the meal with a glass of fragrant schnapps, distilled from fruits grown in the old orchards, and you will wish time simply stopped.
Welcome to the heart of hospitality. Welcome to Ilirska Bistrica.
