Traditional events

In order to make your stay on Velika planina even more interesting and variegated, we have organised numerous events, which are taking place during the winter time.

The most visited event is certainly the Midnight Service on Christmas Eve, which takes place in Snow Mary chapel, which is located in the herdsmen’s settlement, and attracts several thousands visitors every year. The visitors set off to the chapel by foot in the evening hours, carrying torches and lamps, which creates unique atmosphere in the winter idyll of the mountain.
