Hand mowing the slopes of Cavsar

Ročna košnja Cavsarja

Hand mowing the slopes of Cavsar at Raka, which stretches from the local cemetery to the presbytery, attracts tens of mowers from different locations every year.
Together, they mow more than a hectare of grass in a few hours.
The mowing is accompanied by the sound of the accordion played by several musicians, and after the mowing is completed, there is a rich cultural programme.
Lunch includes home cooked food, such as buckwheat “žganci” dressed with cracklings and onions, as well as other dishes prepared with Raka onions.
After the award ceremony, the event continues with groups of singers, recitals and other entertainment.
