WELCOME SPRING - GREGORČKI

Gregorčki is an event that commemorates an old folk custom. Artisans used to symbolically bid farewell to winter by releasing wooden boats with burning candles, expressing their joy that with the arrival of spring, they would no longer need artificial light for their work.

WELCOME SPRING - GREGORČKI

According to the old Julian calendar, spring begins on St. Gregory’s Day, March 12th. Thus, on the eve of St. Gregory’s Day children launch variously shaped boats with candles, called “St. Gregory’s boats” or “gregorčki”, on Gradaščica river. 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 program.
