In Transcarpathia continues sending off the shepherds to meadows. In particular, such a festival was held in the village of Bronko in Irshava region on May 6.
The traditional craft of mountain dwellers – sheep breeding – is still appreciated among the locals. Therefore the shepherds’ farewell to meadows always was a special event. Parting words, wishes for generous summer and safe return to their homes inspire shepherds before the difficult and sometimes dangerous hike. To support them, on behalf of the Regional Council Deputy Pavlo Baloga, shepherds were awarded that day with the financial reward, also he wished to them strong health and happy long life.
