Basic information

July is the month when the residents of Miklouš and the surrounding villages celebrate their ancient customs and cultural tradition. Out into the light of day, the residents bring a variety of lovingly preserved old items and folk costumes, houses and streets are decorated with traditional ornaments, and everything is prepared for a merry get together, shared with the visitors who come for a daylong stay. While men-folk demonstrate the use of old tools, women offer cheese and egg pies and other savoury and sweet cakes they baked for the occasion. Then, in a festive procession, they all go to the old linden tree where the village elder reads them a tonguein- cheek commandment which, in a witty and humorous, and yet traditional manner, comments on all the current problems and events, thus demonstrating how people used to deal with issues that bothered them. The commandment always ends with an invitation to the young to rejoice and chase away gloomy thoughts by dancing and singing. Like contagious disease, such mood spreads to all the visitors of this celebration.
