Days of Cherries

June is the month in which Lovran and the wider area turn red as the fruits of Brtošinka, a cherry variety native to Lovran, begin appearing in the trees. At that time Lovran cafés, restaurants and numerous stands in Trg Slobode in the old heart of Lovran offer freshly picked cherries, beautiful cherry cakes and other dishes prepared from this juicy fruit. The event is spiced by a rich folklore, entertainment and dance program and the making of a 10-meter-long cherry strudel marks the closing ceremony and culminates the joyous month of celebration.
