Ljubno potice are Palm Sunday bunches characteristic of Ljubno and nearby villages. They are made from natural materials and are unique, thanks to the various forms they take (imitating everyday objects).  On Palm Sunday they are taken by families to church to be blessed.

The making of palm sunday bunches in Ljubno has been declared a living masterpiece of national significance.
