Overview of festivals and celebrations in Slovakia
Slovaks love and widely celebrate the ancient pagan festival St. John's Day on June 24. It has spawned many traditions and customs. On this day, young people build a cross using boards. A circle symbolizing the sun is fastened on it. Everyone jumps over the cross set on fire, dances around it, and has fun in every possible way. These jumps help get clean and gain good health. During the holiday, young ladies read the fortune and gather herbs. In June, the famous Beer Festival is organized in Slovakia. A huge number of tourists travel here to take part in it. During the festival, besides the traditional tasting of many varieties of beer, guests and local residents will be able to participate in interesting contests, as well as try various beer snacks. The Manneken Pis became a symbol of the festival. This is an allusion to the diuretic effect of beer, which should be borne in mind.
