Slovenian Folktale Night & Castles
Published on Thursday, November 4, 2010 - 11:41am
For the Kids Euro Festival, we decided to do something a little out of the ordinary. During our Thursday night folktale stories, we tried to change things up a bit by acting out the stories.
For Slovenia, we told the legend of the Predjama castle. The mischievous knight Erazem offends the emperor of Austria. He holes himself up in his famous Predjama castle and then baffles his pursuers by tossing fresh ox meat and cherries over the castle walls.
Little did they know: Erazem was leaving his castle for supplies using a secret entrance in caves behind the castle.
