    Horse-drawn carriage in the parade, Bukowina
    2 more images

    Fondest memory: The Sabala Folk Festival ends in a parade, where the artists ride along the village in a horse-drawn hay cart, heralded by riders on horseback and followed by a horse-drawn carriage or two for the ladies. The man at the head is dressed up as Janosik, the famous Slovak brigand, rumoured to have been robbing the wealthy to give the money to the poor. The real Janosik was executed in Liptovsky Mikulas in 1713, soon becoming a legend, extolled in poems, novels and plays. Against all evidence, Polish mountaineers of the Podhale region believe him to have been of Polish descent. The parade is a wonderful spectacle as it moves along the main street, with all the artists in their colourful traditional dress and playing their instruments.

    Off the Beaten Path in Bukowina

    Favorite thing: Bukowina abounds in paths. Follow as many as you can and you will discover its hidden treasures: unexpected panoramas of the Tatras, traditional timber cottages with their sloping roofs and eaves, mountain meadows with a hut or two, very handy when you are caught unawares by a downpour, clearings hidden in the forest, streams babbling in the valleys, sudden drops of the path towards the river. Full of surprises, it rewards in this way those who make the effort of walking up or down its sometimes very steep hillsides.
