Food and drink 

Guest stand - Žlikrofi Teja & Zajc brewery (ID 20 Institute)

Friends from Idrija and the surrounding area will also present their flavors at the Pier of Tastes in June. At the guest stand, they will greet you with žlikrofi, a traditional dish served with various sauces. And don’t forget to get ready for a refreshing drink from the Zajc brewery, located in the heart of the Divje Babe Archaeological Park. Reopening its doors after 200 years, the brewery offers beer that is anything but Neanderthal – it's modern and local.

First time with us - Krmac & Kralj

A few years ago, friends Andrej Krmac and Matej Kralj started the successful story of Ištrijankica, offering delicacies from Slovenian Istria. You might have encountered them at various events, but this is their first appearance at the Pier of Tastes, where they will delight with their wines and other Istrian specialties. You can also visit them at their homes – Kralj Wines will happily welcome you in their tasting room, and Krmac invites you to their "osmica," where there is no shortage of good wine and authentic Istrian cuisine.
