Dear readers, today I will present to you an event that takes place in my beautiful village on Mount Rajac.
Mowing on Rajac is a tourist event that represents the solemn end of mowing mountain meadows. Every year, tens of thousands of visitors from all over Serbia and the surrounding area enjoy this unique presentation of hard and important work, which was done not so long ago in this area. The event lasts for three days and is filled with rich cultural, artistic and sports contents, and the international event and competition of the best mowers stands out as the central event.
On the day of mowing, the gathering of mob participants begins in the morning. The colorful folk costumes include mowers, water carriers, housewives, trumpeters and singers. With the sound of the trumpet, the wheel is played, a mower's song is sung.
The best mower in the competition part is declared the winner and receives the Golden Hair. The winner of the show competition, for whose choice, in addition to the skill in mowing, the stature, costume and song are taken into account, is declared Djidija or Kozbash. At the next Mowing, he is the one who leads the mowers.
The festival also has an international character. So far, reapers from Great Britain, Iceland, Romania, Russia, the Netherlands, Hungary, Norway have participated in the mowing ... Every year, the best reapers from Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro participate.
After the mowing, on the meadow, there is always an old mowing lunch with specialties and delicacies from that area, many of which are forgotten today. Rajac and mowing together keep the tradition, according to the number of visitors, it would be said very successfully. The mowing is visited by tens of thousands of tourists not only from Serbia, but also from abroad ...
