Folklore

When we talk about Bohemian or Moravian folklore we are thinking about folk literature, ceremonies, theatre, songs, music, dancing games and, last but not least children´s folklore. All these customs are handed down from generation to generation and you can acquaint yourselves with them at folklore festivals that are held throughout the year.

The Ride of the Kings in Vlčnov is an unforgettable experience and probably the most important folklore festival of the year. It is held every year on the last Sunday of May. This year it will be the 194th in a row. The Ride of the Kings is a very old custom that used to be observed in many villages in this country. Today, it takes place in only three places in the Slovácko region – in Vlčnov (every year), Hluk (every second year) and in Kunovice (irregularly). Few people have never heard about Vlčnov – today this \"village of kings\" is also known abroad. It is celebrated by the locals wearing magnificent folk costumes, which have often represented the Czech Republic abroad. With the number of different costumes (81) they have been entered in the Guinness Book of Records. During this folklore festival (listed in the UNESCO calendar) the whole village full of visitors comes alive with song, dance, music and good food and drink.
