Poljubinj (pronounced [pɔljuˈbiːn]; Italian: Polubino[2]) is a settlement east of Tolmin in the Littoral region of Slovenia.[3]

Cultural heritage[edit]

Poljubinj is known for egg decoration during the local šempav holiday, which is named after the former Saint Paul's Church[4] on Žabče Peak (Slovene: Žabijski vrh, 772 meters or 2,533 feet) and is celebrated on the first Sunday in May. Eggs are colored red, and verses and designs are written and painted on them.[5]
