Ostatky, Fašank or Masopust - these terms refer to the official holiday of feasting and rejoicing before the long, forty-day fast. Part of the carnival celebrations is a parade of masks that goes around the village with music. Carnival celebrations had a long tradition in our country, which is starting to be revived again in some towns and villages.

The Winter Skiing Games

On those days 85 years ago, the Winter Skiing Games were held in the Vysoke Tatry, which were an integral part of the Sokol festival Games. In addition to the traditional 50 km cross-country race, men's and women's figure skating competitions and a Canadian ice hockey tournament were also held. You can find more unique photos of these games in the physical education and sports collection of the National Museum.
