Lovers of tradition can learn more about the art of whipping.
Every year, the village of Čičmany (Žilina Region) welcomes both locals and visitors to its "whipping school".
“It’s nice when capable men meet in a nice meadow, in nice surroundings and can crack whips,” said Martin Brxa, the organiser of the whipping school, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
People can learn the basics of whipping while those who already know the basics can continue mastering the art.
Brxa admits that the activity, which aims to save the shepherd's whip, is very popular.
“One's blood is full of endorphins; it is a physical activity that it very attractive for contemporary people,” he added for TASR.
