Bijeli maškari are carnival tradition originating from small village of Putniković on the peninsula Pelješac. It is a chain dance which is played only by men in a form of „kontradanca“ in two rows facing each other. Half of the men wear white male suits while the other half is dressed as females in their typical garments. The custom came to be in the 1960s, but meanwhile it was interrupted until 1990s when the custom was revived. In that period the folklore society of Putniković was formed and it is still active up to this day.
