The day after Christmas is lively in Semič as we celebrate St Stephen’s Day in honour of the patron saint of the Semič parish church. The annual blessing of horses and horsemen takes place on St Stephen’s Square in front of the church, and is visited by people from near and far. Pleasant socialising in the freshness of a winter morning is enriched by a fair of homemade crafts and cuisine, which include typical winter delicacies. The stamping of horses’ hooves and the whinny of interesting and varied horses take us to other times for a moment… Join us on St Stephen’s Day!
