Lovran – Discover the world of chestnuts
The chestnuts in Lovran stand for one of the highest quality breed of chestnuts in the world. It is a sort which is endemic for the Kvarner area having evolved by crossing the chestnuts from the Far East, brought to Lovran by sailors with the domestic indigenous sorts. The people of Lovran are very proud of their chestnuts and have dedicated three weekends in October for holding the event called Marunada. The first weekend the event is held in Lovran itself, while the next two weekends it is held in the nearby villages Liganj and Dobreć.

Various chestnut products are offered on Marunada, from traditional roasted chestnuts to different dishes made from chestnuts as a main ingredient. In the coffee and cake shops cakes, sweets and tarts are on offer, while in pubs and restaurants original domestic chestnut dishes can also be tried. Along with chestnut delicaces, visitors can enjoy domestic honey based snapps and domestic young wine.

The main event in Lovran has an all day long folklore programe, performances by a brass band and popular music. The sports part of Marunada is made up from popular sports from Nature Park Učka and its sporting possibilities – the trekking race Učka Mountain Trek, the hike to Učka and the mountain bike tour from Lovran to Lovranska Draga, Liganj and Dobreć. In Lovran there is also a bowling tournament and a meeting of oldtimer vehicles.

This year`s 38th Marunada will be held from 14-30 October.
