Mining traditions - Jump over the skin

Skok čez kožo (Jump over the skin) and Perkmandelc are newer events lacking the traditional time and place. They revive old mining traditions and characters. Skok čez kožo was a symbolic baptism for miners, after completing the study the student jumped through the stretched skin and gained miner’s status and a toast with a beer. Perkmandelc is an underground dwarf, known by many names in mining towns across Europe. Events take place during the summer in one of the former mining areas of the city.
