GREGORČKI: BIRDS USHERING IN SPRING ON MONDAY 11 MARCH

Join us on March 11th, the eve of St. Gregory’s day, between 1 p.m. and 8 p.m., at the Gradaščica stream on Eipprova ulica in Trnovo, Ljubljana, for Gregorčki, a celebration of an ancient old folk custom, when craftsmen symbolically said their goodbyes to winter by floating small wooden crafts with burning candles downstream, rejoicing that, with the arrival of spring, they would no longer need artificial lights at work.
St. Gregory’s Day is also a holiday of love, as according to folk tradition, “birds get married” on this day. The spring experience at the event will be enriched by a cultural and musical programme.
