Kurentovanje in Ptuj

Text: Nika Gričar Photos: Marko Pigac

Kurentovanje is an important springtime tradition of national cultural and ethnological importance. It takes place every year, according to ancient custom, so that people can "drive away" the winter and offers the ancient town of Ptuj an excellent opportunity for new experiences. Every year more than 100,000 visitors come to Ptuj to see the carnival events and processions and enjoy the colourful carnival costumes, including the unmissable kurents with their unique appearance and noisy cowbells.

You can find more information about this event on Kurentovanje.
