So many “parkeljni” from all sorts of places you have never seen. An increasingly popular event, named by organizers Fire spectacle in Podkoren, is expected to become a real festival.
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.
A temporary traffic regime will be in force during the Fire Spectacular event on Friday 24 November. Several free parking spaces will be available for visitors, and a free shuttle bus service will run from Kranjska Gora Police Station.
