“Lopar night – back to the roots”
In order to preserve the local ways and traditions, pass them down to younger generations and present them to visitors as such, the manifestation “Lopar night – back to the roots” has been held at Lopar since 2007. Since its very beginnings, this manifestation has been a true attraction for both tourist and the people of Lopar and the island. The performers bring to life and present old crafts and skills of the people of Lopar, the tools they used, and what they ate in the old times. Interestingly, some of these are still used and still appreciated as a reminder of the old times.
The highlight of each manifestation is the send-off of St Marinus, according to the legend of this saint who descended from Lopar.
