Traditional Ethnographic Characters


Gypsies from Dornava at Ptujsko polje are unique in this region. Almost all villagers dress up in Gypsies, the habit which has been alive for decades now. They assume many different roles, such as fortunetelling, knife-grinding, music playing, chicken-stealing, and the like.

Their merry-making and colourfully decorated carts add humour and liveliness to the carnival atmosphere.
