Symbolic and ravishing traditions of Southern Bohemia

Obcházení lucek (perambulation of Lucy)

There are six of them – five of them are white, one is black as a priest and they walk draped in a fabric with a bird mask on their face and a clapping beak. Lucky, originally pagan creatures became a part of the Christian folk tradition. The whole ritual symbolises the end of the whole year lasting foulness, ending on the name day of Lucie on the 13th December.

Take a road to Roudná, Skalice, Planá nad Lužnicí and let your senses marvel at the magic of the one tradition of Táborsko Region.
