To make all these dishes delicious, the secret ingredient is olive oil. An evening of olive growers and olive oil is held on 20.08. on which olive growers and oilmen exhibit their products.

If you are interested in the oil production process, our proposal is definitely the Fržop family farm. In his olive oil tasting room, he originally presents traditional olive growing and olive oil production to visitors. Here you can taste and buy, organically produced olive oil.


Another stop for all who love olive oil is the Oil Mill of St. Ivana. Upon arrival at the oil mill, you visit the plant, from receiving the olive fruit until the oil drops come out. They will learn how to taste oil properly, but also go through the history of olive oil processing. An experience that must be repeated.
