Traditional dresses and dances. If you ask me, you should definitely check it out!

This cultural event is held in Vinkovci and is one of the most amazing ones in Croatia. They first held it in 1966. It’s all about tradition; traditional clothes, traditional music, customs, they even try and keep their old phrases alive. If you visit this event, you will see lots and lots of beautiful traditional clothing and people who care about their ancestry and culture. There are many concerts as well during  this festival, as well as sport events and other fun stuff you can try! Vinkovačke jeseni is for young and old alike, everyone will find something they like, no matter if we’re talking about food, music or something third. There’s something for everyone!

 

You can also try many local delicacies, not just food but drinks too. If you visit this place (not only while the event is live, but any other given time as well), don’t be shy and try their schnapps!

 

The people here are really friendly and lovely, they will help you out if you ask them. If you don’t speak croatian, just try to seek out a younger person, there’s a high chance that they will know English.

 

The entry to this event is completely free and usually it starts around the beginning of September.
