On the island of Lošinj February was always considered the month of love. Even a long time ago, Lošinj captains and sailors organized their weddings in February, since they were mainly setting sail on the sea in March.
Love was traditionally celebrated with a Krokant cake – a sweet mixture of caramelized sugar and almonds – which was broken by the newlyweds with a sword and its fragments shared the guests on the wedding.
