Explore different lifestyles and traditions!
The roots of the Bulgarian spirit and its character can be discovered in authentic villages. It’s in fact the link between the different ages and cultures.
The natural environment, the folklore, the customs, the crafts, the village museums, the traditional cuisine and the famous Bulgarian hospitality will make your trip full of emotions. We find these typical villages in the region of the Balkan massif , the region of the Rhodopes and several ones near the resorts of the Black Sea .
In the Bulgarian village, the travellers are welcomed like a guest and feel like a friend of the family. They will have the opportunity to fully participate in the community life of the village (participate in carpentry work, the treatment of textiles, ceramics, the making of cheese, emmental, Bulgarian yogurt, as well as jams, cold meats and, of course, the wine).
Normally the traveller will sleep in a traditional family house and if they wish can share certain meals with the villagers. You will have the possibility to savour the traditional Bulgarian cuisine composed of natural organic products.
Everywhere in the country through our days secular festivals and customs are celebrated. You can participate in a Bulgarian wedding, the dances of Nestinari, the Koukeri Festival, Trifon Zarezan, Eniovden, Koleda, Lazaruvane, Baba Marta, Guérguiovden, Velikden and several others without forgetting the numerous national and international folklore festivals that sprinkle the Bulgarian calendar. (We strongly recommend that you consult the calendar in order to fully profit from the activities during your stay).
Rural tourism is certainly the theme with the largest emotional charge which will stay in your memory and spirit.
