People from Sveti Nikole have an unusual and unique tradition for celebrating Easter. Every year at the International Slavic University “G. R. Derzhavin “in Sveti Nikole is held an Easter contest in egg tapping with ostrich eggs. Competitors from Sveti Nikole and Russia took part in this contest. Guests at the manifestation were also foreign diplomats.
In a relaxed and a cheerful atmosphere, the participants measured the mastered techniques to break the opponent’s egg. The winner of this traditional match is Sarana Mitevska, with her ostrich egg weighing more than one kilogram.
The ostrich eggs were raised on a farm in Sveti Nikole and as the growers say, they are boiled for at least 2 hours and replace 20 chicken eggs.
