Antonja – Feast of St. Anthony


The Carnival period in the Municipality of Viškovo begins on 17 January. This is the feast day of St. Anthony, patron saint of animals, which reflects the traditional way of life of the area (animal husbandry). The beginning of Carnival is marked by the blowing of a horn and the hanging of a straw doll known as Pust. On Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, the Pust is convicted of all the bad things that happened in the previous year and burned.
