Grass-cutting in Predjama

In early July locals gather around the legendary Predjama castle.

They wear their special clothing from ages that no longer are and they are equipped with special tools – hand scythes. They scatter around the meadows surrounding the castle to showcase how grass was cut in the old days and what an event it was. The men would cut the grass, as the women took care of food and drinks before grabbing the rakes. A feast followed the hard work. Our camera participated in this event and brought out the stories of people who remember the days long gone.
