Kranjska sausage

A story has it that the Habsburg Emperor Franz-Josef (1830-1916) stopped for a meal at the renowned carriage drivers’ inn called Marinšek in Naklo near Kranj. The innkeeper told him that he could offer only ordinary house sausages. When the Emperor tasted one, he enthusiastically exclaimed that it was no ordinary sausage, but a Kranjska sausage. Indeed, it is now officially confirmed that Kranjska sausage is a Slovenian speciality. Just as Emperor Franz-Josef confirmed how delicious it is, the European Commission has likewise acknowledged its authenticity.
