A week long Shrove Carnival on medieval streets of Ptuj is welcoming the spring with chasing away the long winter. The ancient city is the only place on Earth going through 5 seasons. The extra season is called Shrove or Pust in Slovene. It is a carnival with a special task – to burry the winter and welcome the spring that is knocking on the door. There are 3 basic features that make the real Shrove – donuts, masks and Kurents.
Every year the Shrove starts exactly seven Sundays before Easter. The following Shrove Tuesday is so important in Ptuj, that people of Ptuj finish working at midday to join in the carefree celebration with other participants and visitors of Kurentovanje.
