Every summer in the month of July the site of Mirine-Fulfinum revives the spirit of Roman times with what has already become traditional ancient supper. The evening of ancient cuisine is one of the most recognisable events of the municipality of Omišalj, an area ever more oriented to tourists whose attention it wants to draw to its rich history, of which many more developed tourist destinations in Croatia and even in the Mediterranean could be envious. With this event we want to revive the traditional customs of our region and to implement them into the offer. The Evening of Ancient Cuisine is interesting not only as a gastronomic but also cultural event in which visitors return to ancient times, when Romans walked through Fulfinum and enjoyed a rich ancient culinary table. By the light of fiery torches, with original ancient music, street entertainers, gladiators, Roman soldiers and the Emperor and the Emperor’s entourage, visitors dressed in Roman togas enjoy an ancient atmosphere. A Roman camp creates a special atmosphere for the Evening of Ancient Cuisine, as do the presentations by blacksmiths, potters, weavers, rope and basket makers and a beauty salon where visitors can have an ancient hair do or have their skin painted with henna. The Evening of Ancient Cuisine is intended for a wide audience, people from Omišalj and the island of Krk, Rijeka and the wider environs, however primarily for tourists who are staying in our destination during that period. The event is held during the tourist season in one of the most popular tourist area as a special part of the local cultural offer.
