Live Gingerbread Museum

ğLectarstvoĞ is an old and renowned traditional handicraft of Slovenia. The decorated pastry is made from honey dough and shaped either with a wooden or a tin mould, or by hand. During the late Middle Ages, lect was popular with the social elite. The oldest preserved wooden mould, made for a customer who was a nobleman, dates to the 16th century. The craft is one of the oldest practiced in cities and on squares, while in the countryside lect workshops appeared in the 19th century, when lect-making saw its heyday. In those times, these products were highly regarded as meaningful tokens of love. Today, honey-bread products are precious souvenirs from our country. They also make lovely promotional items or business gifts.
