Dol Dormouse Festival
In a sea of festivals and events only the Dol , a picturesque village near Stari Grad, organizes the unique dormouse festival – Puhijada.
The name of this gastronomical and entertainment festival comes, of course, from the dormouse – a small rodent which is, according to the connoisseurs, a real gastronomic delicacy. In the past, dormice have been seen as Deorum Cibus – the God’s morsel, which practically hasn’t changed to this day, making this village widely known for its dormice and the Dormouse festival.
Each year in August the Dormouse festival is organised by the local Tarjatun organisation aiming to preserve local tradition and, aside from this gastro section, offers a variety of sporting, cultural and entertainment events.
