… and well, after that, maybe some happenings to attend, to dance and sing all night long…  


A selection of associations will be available to provide you information on the traditions, tourist attractions, culture and literature of the Balkans.


The Balkans are a genuine “food highway”. Their gastronomic products and traditions have travelled far and wide, to Maghreb and even to India, integrating local influences along the way.

This year it is the traditional cuisine of the former Yugoslavia and the Rom community that are being celebrated.

At the Vino Zirkus wine bar you can enjoy a selection of the best wines from south-eastern Europe as well as performances by a whole range of bands and dance group.
