Practically archetypal, "average" Malanka, the engine of which is started not by employees of cultural institutions, but by local youth.

Therefore, there is little authenticity in characters (although it still is!), and a lot of sharp satire and ready-made masks from stores.

So you can see how the ancient custom mutates, changes in modern conditions. Malanka in Nyzhni Stanivtsi is not a tourist product at all, but a pure desire of young people to misbehave on a day when it is allowed by customs.
