Not only during the carnival, the runners (laufarji) are here all year around! The name “laufarji” is derived from the German word “laufen” (to run) and was given to them because the Thread Men – one of the main characters – are constantly running and jumping around. A special feature of the Cerkno runners are the head masks or larfas made of lime-wood. Don’t let the Ta terjasti scare you at the exhibition and walk through the stories of over 200 exhibited items about life and the economic, social and cultural development of Cerkno region from the 11th century on. Today’s young people don’t know many of them!
