9. Idica's Bakery

Local Ethnographic Museum

The oldest wood-fired oven in Kastav has been preserved in Idica's Bakery in Pelini, a part of Kastav's old town. Local women used to bring firewood in bundles from the nearby Loza forest. A baker would gain recognition depending on the taste, appearance and the overall quality of bread, and the tidiness of the bakery. People in Kastav still remember Ida - Idica Bačić (1890-1975) as an excellent cook and baker who used to bake bread for many years in her bakery in Pelini. In memory of her and other bakers from Kastav, this authentic place - Idica's Bakery - has been preserved as one in the row of local ethnographic museums in Kastav.
