Review of the festival of the Five-petal rose (Czech Republic, Cesky Krumlov)

 

To write this review made me wonderful memories of our trip to Czech Republic in June 2012. Next month in an old Czech town again will take place the traditional festival of the Five-petal rose. I want to be there. But we came to this festival by accident. Regular excursion programs offer to visit the city and to visit the castle Deep. But this time the tour coincided with the festival. Surprisingly, many tourists from our group refused to go, say what’s there to see. How did they regret later.

The Czech Krumlov is a small historic town in southern Bohemia. From Prague we drove almost 2 hours. The city has retained its old appearance and is currently under the protection of UNESCO.

The city is very beautiful and deserves its separate story. And today we have the famous festival in the world with a Five-petal rose. Its name he received from the family arms of the Rosenbergs, once owned this town and surrounding lands. These days in the city attracts tourists from all over the world. With most dressed in medieval costumes.

The festival in the city these days let free men in suits, the rest Continue reading

Unusual holidays and festivals in different countries and continents

 

Of course, each nation has its own traditions, customs and festivals, many of them very original, and at first incomprehensible. In General, we all have our own standards of behavior, belief and a way of expressing emotions. Ceremonial events often become a kind of ritual, which is sometimes very interesting to watch, but sometimes that is perceived as savage. I propose to draw attention to unusual holidays and festivals of different countries. Will visit America, Asia and Europe.

Festival El Colacho

This distinctive festival is held every year in the Spanish town of Castillo de Murcia in June. The goal is to jump over small children.

People collect all newborns and lie on the pillows. Then comes Colaco − disguised as a man, symbolizing the devil running. He runs up and starts to jump over children. This rite symbolizes the cleansing from disease and fears. Quite unusual, although somewhat resembles pagan traditions, some dates Slavs had celebrated by jumping over the fire.

Peruvian Takanakuy

This annual celebration takes place on Christmas in the Peruvian Andes. He concludes that fairly drunk parties converge in the circle of spectators and begin Continue reading
