Unusual folk music festival - this could be a depiction of the festival called Hontian Show. It is one of the most recent and most attractive folk culture events. It is interesting for its originality and inventiveness. In Hrusov, a picturesque town situated on the south of central Slovenska, there will be the 18th sequel of this interesting event, it will take place on August 16th and 17th 2013. The whole town lives on this event - yards, streets, solitudes, convention center and an amphitheatre want to bring closer almost forgotten agricultural tradition, crafts, works and traditions as past generations knew them. Also, there will be helt various folk shows in an interesting amphitheatre, yards, wine cellars, and also you will experience degustation of local specialties. Lets go with us and experience atmosphere of the last year festival. If you have no plans yet, I recommend you the 18th year of Hostinska Show.
