Show Notes

The spring arrives in Croatia today and it's brought to you by the Croatian version of the Green Man. We call him Green Jura or Zeleni Jura

This episode brings you the peculiar folk traditions related to St George's Day. Magical rituals left behind from ancient times, bonfires,  purifying rituals, and even a dragon, all come together on what used to be one of the most important holidays of old.

As promised in the episode, here are a few links where you can listen to traditional (or traditional with a modern take) songs of the day:
