Erasmus+ students about Cracow experince!
CRACOW-The Old Town receives the spring . March 29 was the day of Rekawka, the traditional cracowian festival in which people say finally goodbye to winter in a special environment. Settled in one of the most important hills of the city, Krakus Mound, this festival allows hundreds people, once for year, to relive the medieval atmosphere. According to the ancient Slavic legend, people piled his grave ruler wearing the earth in his hands and sleeves, which is reflected in the name. In turn, the Slavic etymology points to the root associated with the burial - (Serb cancer - grave, Czech rakev - coffin), which emphasizes even more explicitly the relationship of this tradition from the grave of the legendary Krak.
Surrounded by kids of all ages and families dressed for the occasion the show starts with the warriors running in full armor around the Mound. Walking to the way was easy to admire as to buy a lot of handmade-gadgets thanks to the numerous medieval stands available in the whole area. After the girlish spring procession, the divination act of prosperity and all the reproduction of Slavic myths, people come all together to join the most awaited moment of the festival: the battle of Gods and their armies finalized with the burial of mighty Slowianka.
