S brda, iz ciganske mahale, što se povukla u vis i na kraj, zaglušno je udarao bubanj i pištala zurna, đurđevsko veselјe se sručivalo na kasabu kao plјusak, neprestano, nikud se od njega nije moglo pobjeći.

I picked up from "DERVIŠ I SMRT". I'm not sure how to understand the word "đurđevsko".

    I see. Свети Георгије, Свети Ђорђе... Đurđevdan... These words are all similar? I was wondering... :) Hvala!

    That's right. Also "Jurjevdan" or "Jurjevo" among Catholics and Muslims (in Bosnia it used to be commemorated by all three confessions - not today, as far as I know).

    But at least they play basketball together, when they are out of the Ex-Yugoslav territory (for example, in Vienna) even now. ;-)

    :) I remember it well, because I played with them, and I felt as if I was a small kid. XD But they let me join. Appreciated! ;-) Hvala!
