Lovran - Saveur praises the Festival of Asparagus

12 June 2012

Lovran, Asparagus Festival
After the English magazine The Guardian praised the Chestnut Festival, another gastro event in Lovran aroused the attention of foreign media, so the leading American magazine for the culture of food, beverages and gastro travel Saveur wrote notes on the Lovran Asparagus Festival. The article states that wild asparagus grows on the slopes of the Croatian mountain Učka and that it has a delicate flavor thanks to the mixture of mountain and sea air. Each year, in honor of this plant which sprouts in April, a festival is organized in Lovran where many restaurants offer dishes with asparagus, culminating with a large fritaja made with a thousand scrambled eggs and large quantities of asparagus, which is prepared in a frying pan with a two meter diameter.

This year, in the eleventh edition of the festival, asparagus picking was, for the first time, organized for the tourists who then learned how to prepare them in wokshops.

Lovran is a town with a long and rich history and a one hundred year old tradition in tourism. It was named after laurel (Laurus nobilis) which grows abundantly in the evergreen groves in the town and the surrounding area.

The city has preserved its historical core and the medieval city plan. Good climate, lush Mediterranean vegetation and a favorable geographical location enabled the strong development of tourism at the turn of the 20th century. Since those days Lovran has, next to Opatija, been the most important place of the famous Riviera. Several villas built at that time are included in the world's architectural heritage.
