Website: the Kurent House


Every country – including Slovenia – is proud of its distinguished cultural artefacts and individuals who have carried its name across national borders. One of them is the traditional character of Kurent/Korant, which is well-known not only locally, in Ptuj and its surroundings, but also across Slovenia and the world.

The opening of the KURENT HOUSE places Kurent/Korant in a place of historical importance. It is the result of the efforts of interested societies that have been preserving the heritage of Kurent/Korant and its rituals. The idea for the Kurent House was conceived and realized by the Association of Kurent Societies, which comprises 25 societies with over 1,100 members.

Using modern technologies, visitors can learn about the deep meaning of rituals, which have been preserved in the Dravsko and Ptujsko polje and in Haloze and Slovenske gorice from ancient times to the present day. You can explore Kurent/Korant in an interactive, individualized and globally recognizable way, while the cultural heritage is presented in an experiential and innovative way, effectively preserving it for future generations.

The Kurent House operates under the auspices of the Slovenian National Commission for UNESCO.
