Shrovetide processions from the Hlinecko Region

Dance in a whirl of carnival masks in the Hlinecko Region!

Every year, in the days when winter slowly gives way to spring, many villages in the Hlinecko Region hold colourful and merry carnival processions that travel from house to house, delivering joy, health and happiness to everyone they visit. Their history reaches far back into the past, and thanks to their strong tradition, which has been passed down from generation to generation, they have also been added to the UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
