Today we're stepping back and looking at traditional folk attire of a couple from Slovakia. Honoring their roots, the couple decided to wear traditional Slovak folk costumes for a pre-wedding photoshoot in a little Belianske Tatras

Male folk costumes from town Detva and nearby areas (Podpoľanie region, Central Slovakia) are know for having extra short shirts that don’t cover belly. That’s why people wearing these costumes were called holopupkári - “those with nude bellies”.
