Culture and history info

Coming to Kuterevo and not hearing Kuterevka Dangubica (a special kind of a string instrument) would be a real shame.  This specific tamburitza is listed as cultural heritage, and can still be heard when people gather around for an event, or prelo (Prelo nowadays stands for a simple gathering, but was once a custom where young people would „ hang-out “, meet, look for spouses, prune the wool, pluck feathers, knit, sing and have fun).
