One of those shops that I can’t really believe still exists is situated on the main pedestrian street, Čopova ulica, named after the important Slovenian linguist Čop, the shop has confronted some system changes and is kind of a monument of the fraternal country we used to have.
If you share the adoration for chocolate with me, you should visit this shop in between hunting down the main tourist attractions in the city centre. Try “bajadera” or “ledene kocke” (directly translated as ice cubes) to gain some strength. Both have been well known sweets around here for a long time.
The shop that we refer to with the French word bonbonnière has goodies from KRAS, a Croatian company that’s been in my life since childhood. Their main chocolate brand is called Dorina, and comes in a variety of flavors. One of my favorite chocolate they make is Toblerone-kind-of chocolate called Kolumbo.
