The story of Jezersko 2018


SUMMER EVENTS IN ZGORNJE JEZERSKO, SLOVENIA

Jezersko is a valley under Grintovci that, in addition to the exceptional location, also features a unique dialect, which is preserved in Andrej Karničar’s book Jezerske štorije (The Stories of Jezersko). This way, the stories, legends, and memories of the events of everyday life, which have long been passed on only through the oral tradition, remain alive.

It is our identity that we maintain and want to share with you. We have prepared a variety of summer events which present an important link between the past and the present. The events are interesting and suitable for anyone who would like to know more about our history, ethnological heritage, nature, majestic mountains, farms, animals and local food.

You are kindly invited to attend the summer events in Jezersko - join Jezerska štorija 2018.


INFORMATION:

All events are free of charge. We would appreciate your voluntary donations at the events.

INDIVIDUAL EVENTS

SHEPHERD’S FESTIVAL, the oldest Slovenian ethnographic event.

By the Planšar lake, Zgornje Jezersko 125a

Sunday, the 12th of August 2018

Every year on the second Sunday in August, the Restaurant by the lake and the Tourist Association of Jezersko organize the oldest Slovenian ethnographic event called the Shepherds’ Festival. This year it will be the 60th in a row. The old customs from the mountains, such as sheep herding, and jobs, associated with the processing of sheep's wool from shearing and spinning to knitting socks, will be demonstrated.

You will be able to pamper your taste buds with homemade dishes prepared in the traditional way on an open fire. »Masunjek« with sour milk and buckwheat »žganci « with cabbage were dishes that shepherds used to prepare in the mountains. Fresh fried »flancati« still symbolize the festive atmosphere of the event.
