We have created this site for you to extend a bridge between the
past and the future, and show you a tiny fragment of the cultural
heritage of our nation. We introduce you to something unique,
almost unknown though it has existed in the heart of Europe for
centuries on. The phenomenon called Nestinarstvo still remains
unveiled; an enigma posing many unanswered questions. But one
thing is for certain, it can deeply touch anyone.
sweltering summer of 2001 faced us with numerous challenges, hard
work and strenuous efforts that led us to the successful completion
of the project. Throughout that time we were urged by the desire
to acquaint the world with an ancient custom, and also to show
that the dance on embers (often commercialized) is only a facet
of an intricate complex, in which the central position belongs
to the never-changing values of the human spirit and the eternal
search for happiness.
leave the door open for you!
