Fishermen to their town


The central idea of the event is to popularize fishing as a sport, a competition in the preparation of Fisherman’s soup, to acquaint people with tourist potentials of the town and its surroundings, an economic promotion and a rich gastronomic offer which consists of primarily freshwater fish, other food and domestic beverages. Zrinski and other squares in the centre of the town are the venues of a fair of old trades connected to water and a cultural and artistic program.

Visitors can watch the competition in the preparation of Fisherman’s soup, buy new and used fishing gear, and try out their fishing skills in the pool with the fish. Visitors can also try a Fisherman’s soup and various dishes from a rich gastronomic offer that includes various ways to cook fish (“kotlovina” (fish cooked in a large shallow plate above the fire) and fish roasted on a wooden fork), and it is also possible to fish alone in the pool.
