Karampana as an integral part of the traditional Kotor Winter Carnival dates back to 1926 and is sold at Kameni Kiosk in front of the Old town of Kotor.
Kotor President Vladimir Jokic pointed out that it is a well-marked tradition that lasts more than five hundred years.
"Today in Kotor it was nice to see when the main city street is closed, when people are walking and when they resist everything that has been bad in the past year. I hope to move this carnival maze and walk from Kotor to Podgorica and resist everything bad in this system," said Jokić.
On behalf of the organizer, the Cultural Center "Nikola Đurković," the director Marija Bernard expressed satisfaction with the overall organization of the Kotor’s Carnival, which was organized for the 501st time.
