Drežnica Carnival

Top choice carnival in Kobarid

On the Sunday before Lent, head for Drežnica, 6km northeast of Kobarid one of Slovenia's most cherished festivals. Unmarried young men and boys don handmade wooden masks, either Ta Lepi (the Pretty Ones) or Ta Grdi (the Ugly Ones). The former visit every house in the village to wish the inhabitants well and receive gifts in return.

The latter chase children and sprinkle them with ashes.
