Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Ukraine, Arts & Culture, Ethnicity & Race, Food, Indigenous, Travel

Stefan of Dykun offers his readers a break from Ukrainian politics: an annotated video of a Hutsul wedding [1]. “The wedding was that of a cousin of a friend, Anna. Much of Anna's heritage is Hutsul. Hutsuls and their descedents have lived in their part of the Carpathians for some 500-600 years. The sign at the entrance to Anna's home village of Jabloniv boasts 450 yrs of settlement.”
