The Feast of the Transfiguration of Jesus or Apples Feast is the most important day of the year for the Setos from the area of Obinitsa.
We will start celebrating Apples Feast already a day before – a church service will take place in the evening and we will walk to the Obinitsa lake.
August 19th or Apples Feast will begin with a morning church service in the Obinitsa Church. After that, we will have a meal with the deceased on their graves.

In the afternoon, friends of Obinitsa are also welcome to enjoy the dance and songs of Setos. Late in the evening, we will have a village party near the village centre.

We ask the guests to arrive in small groups and pay their respect to the customs of the locals.
