In Bulgaria, we celebrate a lot throughout the year. We have a total of 13 public holidays. Some of them are Christian - Easter and Christmas, others are related to Bulgarian history. Of the second type are the two major national holidays in September - the celebration of the Unification of the Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia and the Independence of Bulgaria.
If you happen to visit the Seven Rila Lakes in mid-August you can find there hundreds of people in white, lined up in a circle, dancing with their eyes on the sun. The ritual is called paneurhythmy, and through it the followers of Petar Dunov's teachings connect with nature and each other.
Immerse yourself in the vibrant tapestry of Bulgarian traditions and embark on a cultural journey like no other. Our guided day tours provide a gateway to the heart and soul of this beautiful country, where age-old customs and rich folklore come to life.
