I'm telling you this "secret" that almost noone else knows :) So, this year, the city launches the annual celebration of St. Martin's Day - this is the patron saint of our city.
Saint Martin's Day is celebrated throughout Europe. It is both a celebration of the first wine, and something similar to our St. Nicholas Day. Guys offered to revive this festival here in Mukachevo," - the politician and an honorary citizen of the city Victor Baloha said.
"What we have planned? There will be a parade in the center of the city with knights in armor. In Mukachevo castle there will be tasting of cheeses and young wines. We will also, according to European traditions, bake geese and "give wine to land." This is also a ritual. Thanks to Fedir Sandor and Mykhailo Kolodko for great ideas. All their achievements in the field of tourism, all progressive ideas will be embodied in Mukachevo. In just 2 days, thanks to mayor Zoltan Lendyel we managed to resolve the issue with chocolate workshop and celebration of St. Martin's. And this is just the beginning " - Baloha added. St. Martin's Day celebration is scheduled for November, and has to become a traditional holiday.
