FLOWER WREATHS

We are trying to bring the custom of hanging floral wreaths on Midsummer’s Day back to life. This custom was a tradition in villages Stara Fužina and Studor on the Midsummer night because it was supposed to vanquish bad spirits and keep the snakes away.

Organizer:

  • Krajevna skupnost Stara Fužina-Studor
  • Turizem Bohinj
