"KOZOLEC" Slovenia Local Custom Tip by balhannah
Slovenia Local Customs: 72 reviews and 58 photos
We arrived in Slovenia via road from Italy. On passing through the border crossing, pretty well straight away, we noticed free standing racks in the middle of the paddocks in Slovenia.
What were they used for we wondered?
A little further on, we found out what, it was Hay, draped over each and everyone of them to dry.
These free standing, vertical drying racks are for drying Hay for Stock, and are found mainly in Slovenia.
Their Slovenian name is "Kozolec," and they can be found in 80% of Slovenia.
Similar can be found in Friuli, Italy, and in the East Tyrol region of Austria.
It all looked so neat and tidy, I imagine it would be quite a bit of handwork to do it this way.
Question was answered, and on our way we went!
