Review of folklore in Slavonski Brod
Among other things, Slavonski Brod is recognizable by its traditional manifestations, which attract the large number of visitors. The most significant manifestation is the oldest review of folklore in Croatia Brodsko kolo (The wheel dancing of Brod), which took place the first time in Slavonski Brod in 1963 year. This unique manifestation is known beyond Croatians borders. It promotes traditional cultural inheritance and original values of Brod and Posavina, Slavonia and Croatia in general. All these are realizing through appearances of numerous cultural clubs, folk and singing groups, and musicians on traditional instruments from Croatia and from abroad.
Slavonski Brod lives along with its manifestation during the Brodsko kolo, just like in olden days when during the first half of the 20th centuries on the main town square, of the Day of St. Stipan King - the 21st August. At this day a lot of people danced the great wheel dancing. Usually round about more hundreds luxuriously dressed up showily local girls and boys, as well as old and young people, dressed in gold, silk, national costumes...
