Folk Games: Place in Serbia where the old athletic disciplines come to life

The Guca Trumpet festival has traditionally nurtured the Folk Games, which include a combination of several old athletic disciplines: Wrestling “in the bone”, throwing stones from the shoulder, jumping “out of place”, shooting ”apple’s heart” with an air rifle.
