Šranga (The obstacle) 👰‍♀🤵💍💒

In the rural areas of Slovenia, it is still a tradition for the groom (ženin) to pick up the bride from her house on their wedding day (poročni dan). On the way to her house, the local young men prepare Šranga (a wooden obstacle), to block the road and stop the groom from getting to his bride (nevesta). When he arrives at the obstacle, he is given two options (dve opciji). He can either pay the local men or saw through the Šranga. Once he makes his way through, the young men try to trick (prevarati) him again. At the bride’s house, they dress an older person (starejša oseba) in the wedding dress (poročna obleka), and they try to pass him/her off as the bride. Again, the groom has to pay in order to get the bride and to get married.

Poroka = a wedding
Zakon = a marriage
Nevesta = a bride
Ženin = a groom


In love with roasted potatoes 😋🥔🥔♨️

For the past sixteen years, The Society for Acknowledging Roasted Potatoes (pečen krompir) as The Main Course has been organizing the International Festival of Roasted Potatoes.

What started as a small gathering (majhno srečanje) now brings together thousands of roasted potato lovers (ljubitelji pečenega krompirja) from Slovenia and abroad.

Each year the festival is held in a different city ( v drugem mestu), where restaurants (restavracije) and organized groups prepare the potatoes in over thirty different variations (trideset različnih načinov). As befits, the roasted potatoes are served as the main course (glavna jed) and meat is added as a side dish (stranska jed).

Slovenci obožujejo pečen krompir. 🥔♨️❤
Slovene people adore roasted potatoes.

The Day of the Deceased 🕯🪦💐

November 1st marks the Day of the Dead (Dan mrtvih) in Slovenia. On this day locals pay respects to the deceased by visiting the cemetery (pokopališče) where they light candles (prižgati sveče) and bring flowers to the graves.

Many people also visit family members (obiskati družinske člane) they don’t usually get to see throughout the year.

Around midday, locals visit the cemetery in silence, and after the priest is done blessing the graves, families gather together for a small meal.

These traditions make The Day of the Dead one of the most important family holidays in Slovenia (eden najbolj pomembnih praznikov v Sloveniji).

Grob = a grave
Sveča = a candle
Rože = flowers
Hrana = food

The Cow Ball (kravji bal) started as a small celebration (praznovanje) where shepherds (pastiriji) were honored after returning from the mountains (gore) and bringing the cattle (živina) back to the village. Nowdays it is a celebration where locals of the Bohinj Valley gather every year in mid-September.

Over the last 60 years, the Cow Ball in Bohinj has become a well-known event and has been attracting visitors (obiskovalci) from all over Slovenia and the world. The shepherd’s return is celebrated with folk music, group performances, accordion orchestras, brass bands, delicious local food, and Slovenian wine.

🌸Every spring, towns around Slovenia host the Blessing of the Motorcycles (žegnanje motorjev). Events are organized by the local Moto Clubs (lokalni motoristični klubi) and they vary in size.

🏍🛵At the smallest events, only a couple of motorcycles are blessed, and the larger ones can bring together up to ten thousand motorcycles.

😇The bikes are blessed by priests (duhovniki) in the hope of a safe driving season (sezono varne vožnje).

🏍🥰Jaz rad vozim motor.

🏍❤Motorji so mi od nekdaj všeč.

The tradition (tradicija) of lighting bonfires (kres) in Slovenia goes back hundreds of years. Throughout history, the reasons for bonfires have changed.

🌞In the past, they were used as a tool in mystical rituals (mističnih ritualih) to help the sun gain more power in the spring (pomlad).

👷‍♀️👨‍🏭🔈Since 1890, when the world first celebrated Labor Day on May 1st (Praznik dela za prvi maj), bonfires were lit the day before to serve as reminders of worker’s rights (delavske pravice).

🎊Nowadays, bonfires are still lit all over Slovenia on April 30th, but not as much as a tool for the worker’s unions, but more as a social event.
⛰🧍‍♂️🧍‍♂️People gather at the top of the hills (se zberejo na vrhu hriba), around the bon fire at the night time, dance, eat, drink and spend a great time celebrating the fire infront of them.

Ali greš z mano na kresovanje?
Would you like to go see a bon fire with me?

Next time you meet again, you can return the favor (vrniti uslugo), and offer to pay their bill (plačati račun) in return.

If the host doesn't offer to pay, and you don't want to pay for the round (plačati rundo), it is polite to offer to split the bill.

With this gesture, you express your gratitude (hvaležnost) to the host.
