Struga Poetry Evenings - Struga
Struga Poetry EveningsSince 1961 this event has taken place every August and usually lasts three to five days. Each year, this poetry festival begins traditionally with the reading of the unforgettable poem by Konstantin Miladinov "Longing for the South" ("T'ga za jug"). Inspired by the harsh Russian winters, Konstantin wrote this memorable poem during his student days in Moscow. During its existence of over 45 years, the festival has hosted some 4,000 poets, translators, essayists, and literary critics from 95 countries worldwide. The most spectacular evening of the festival is certainly the one entitled “Bridges,” when the poets address the audience with their poetry from the bridge where the Crn Drim River exits the lake Ohrid. Each year the winner is awarded with a “Golden Wreath.”
