MESOPUST – CARNIVAL

 

Mesopust – Carnival

Carnival is a traditional event that has been taking place in Senj for more than three centuries.
Every Saturday, from Epiphany until Ash Wednesday, i.e. the beginning of Lent, the town’s Magnus discotheque hosts costume parties. The carnival ends on Shrove Tuesday with the hanging of the puppet known as Mesopust, who is held guilty for all the troubles of the previous year.
