Fantovščina

Fantovščina

Fantovščina is a Slovenian name for a bachelor party. Many of them I saw on the streets of Slovenia, Austria and Belgium during my EVS. Usually every Saturday Škofja Loka is full of such drunk guys. :) One Saturday afternoon I had a possibility to participate in this kind of party.

Our EVS flat is situated on the main square of Škofja Loka, so we are always aware about everything what happens there. On that day I looked from the window of our kitchen because of loud music, laugh and voices outside. At the square I saw about 20 guys in yellow t-shirts surrounding one guy who was trying to dance with any girl he could, the dance was simple but as I understood because of the music, it was something traditional Slovenian (Polka). So I was sitting on the windowsill and stared at them, at one point they noticed me and started to ask to go downstairs to dance. My first intention was not to go, but then I changed my mind just to do an opposite thing to my wish.

Downstairs I was explained that he was going to get married in one week, but now he has to do this funny actions because his friends gave him a task to do it.

P.S. We saw 5 “fantovščina”, 1 “dekliščina” (girl’s party) and two weddings in Škofja Loka on 18th of May. :-)
