This article discusses the region of Gora (Kosovo) of the municipality of Dragash/Dragaš, which continuously cultivates folk tradition and customs. The whole culture of the Gore relies on Islamic culture and civilization as well as the adherents of related Islamic peoples, and finally for other pagan elements from the ancient past. National tradition can be the main attraction for visitors and be used to increase tourist visits during certain periods of the year. Events organized in the Gora region offer good opportunities for the development of manifestation and rural tourism. Special attention is paid to the celebration of Đurđevdan and May's meetings, which are indigenously organized in the famous places in Gora, where very interesting ethno-cultural and folklore elements come to show. The Gora region has developed human and cultural resources.
