60TH COWS BALL IN BOHINJ

Unique traditional event, celebrating the end of grazing and tourist summer season.

The charm of the Bohinj valley has always been that undefined set-back-in-time way of life, where every year in May alpine herdsmen still go to the high mountain pastures to take care of the cattle, produce milk and cheese as they have done for centuries. This year’s 60th Jubilee Cow’s Ball will be held at the Ukanc village, where we will have the opportunity to see the big arrival of cows returning back from the mountain pastures. The best looking cow will be rewarded with a bouquet and accompanied by presentation of local dances, food and drinks.
