CULINARY EXPERIENCES OF DOBRNA

When exploring Dobrna, you will also find a variety of delicacies and products marked with the Good Dobrna logo. The idea for the Good Dobrna logo was originally created among members of the Dobrna Tourist Association, who wanted a uniform approach when presenting Dobrna to the public. Today, the Good Dobrna logo represents the destination of Dobrna. The Good Dobrna logo consists of the typography of the name Dobra Dobrna (Good Dobrna) and a stylised symbol from the letter O, acorn with oak leaf. The oak leaf is an element of the Dobrna coat of arms, and the acorn represents a fruit or a product. The Good Dobrna logo is mostly represented by members of the Farm Women Association Dobrna, who work under the auspices of the aforementioned association. Hardworking housewives prepare homemade bread, noodles, pastries, potica (roll) and more. You can also find some of the above-mentioned specialities at the farmer’s market in the centre of Dobrna on Saturday mornings.
