Old saying is revealing to us, that St Gregory threw the lamp in the water. He wanted to tell artisans, that the light would not be needed anymore in their workshops.
On eve of St Gregory's day, the arrival of spring is celebrated. At dusk people, young and already more experienced put their home, handmade little boats with little candles in the water. The boats are usually made of environmentally friendly material like paper, cardboard or wood. The candles lit the construction, so it looks very romantic. The stream of water take little constructions away with their flow and prove to the locals that lights will not be needed any more, since the days are going to be longer.
To see how the locals celebrate this evening, we would like to invite you to come with us on a walking tour to a place well kept by locals- in Trnovo and Krakovo in Ljubljana. At night is very vivid and joyful along the stream Gradaščica. Do you fancy a short tour by car to some close little towns like Radovljica, Škofja Loka or Kropa, where can be seen how the warmth and light were welcomed by the iron forgers? No problem, just contact us and we are going to prepare an unforgettable experience for you!
