St Lazarovden

You are here Home » Camping Blog » Culture » St Lazarovden

A lovely traditional event at the campsite today ! The young girls from the village celebrate St Lazarovden. Wearing traditional costume of their local area the group visit their neighbours and dance and sing folklore songs of love, happiness, health and prosperity. In times past the group would receive in return small gifts, eggs and fruit etc. But nowadays the gifts are chocolates and money !

The little choir from our village sang very well today. Well done !
