The rich traditional cuisine of the region has been shaped by the influences of neighboring countries. Try dumplings, žganci, matevž, various porridges, and buckwheat and corn žganci. Don’t miss out on polenta, mlinci, stewed sauerkraut, or turnip. Wine and gastronomy are central parts of Slovenian tradition; we cherish our wines and delicious specialties.
