Pust is a cultural festival celebrated 40 days before Easter. In every village, town and city locals dress up in masks and costumes and parade in the streets. All the different regions of Slovenia have their own Pust traditions, customs and characters. In the village Log pod Mangartom this parade is organized by Pustno društvo Mangrt.
Log pod Mangartom lies in Loška Koritnica valley in the Triglav National Park. The valley is surrounded by 15 peaks with an elevation of over 2.000 m, giving it a unique atmosphere and making it an attractive starting point for hikers. Log pod Mangartom is a picturesque, small village nestling under mt. Mangart. The village comprises two adjoining settlements: Spodnji Log (Lower Log) and Zgornji Log (Upper Log).
