Bell ringers Festival and Matulji Municipality Day
The wearing of masks, with which man performs fertility rites, drives away evil spirits and marks the passage of winter into spring, has been present in almost all civilizations and all parts of the world since times long past. This custom has particularly taken deep roots in the localities of the North Croatian Littoral.
As the center of the bell-ringer tradition, Matulji opens its doors to welcome other groups from Croatia and abroad whose mask-wearing customs are similar to those of the Bell-ringers.
Visit us on occasion of the Bell-ringers Parade – become familiar with our tradition; let it become a part of you, too!
