Fire spectacle – The Hike of the Parkeljni (Krampus)

Festival of the parkeljni (Krampus)

So many “parkeljni” from all sorts of places you have never seen. An increasingly popular event, named by organizers Fire spectacle in Podkoren, already became a real festival. In Podkoren, you will experience a terrifying parade of more than 20 groups of “parkeljni” coming from three countries.

The “parkeljni” are mythical creatures, terrifying black men, going from house to house frightening children. It originates from pagan times, when these evil spirits became companions and helpers of St. Nicholas: in accordance with Christian values, the saint rewarded the good children, and “parkeljni” (Krampus) frightened the naughty ones.

You are invited to join us in Podkoren on Friday 29 November from 18:00. After the Podkoren event, there will be an afterparty at the Vitranc Hall in Kranjska Gora.
