Štrudlafest will take place on the first weekend of September in Jaškovo near Ozalj just north of Karlovac.
From 1-3 September visitors can sample over a hundred different flavours – from classic fruity and savoury ones to those with cracklings, hemp, and lamb, and even ones with mushrooms and beer.
One famous strudel from the festival is the Baron Jaškovo Strudel. This strudel entered the Guinness Book of Records for the longest in the world when it measures 1,479.38 metres.
Below is the recipe.
