PRIVLAKA

Water wells and local customs

It was customary in Privlaka for young brides to bring cakes and apples to the water well on the first morning after their wedding night. The bride would place cake and apples on the edge of the water well and throw the remaining apples into the well. The village boys would wait all night by the well to be the first to taste the cake. Women coming to the well during the day to draw water would find apples in their buckets and know that there was a new bride in the village.
