On the 12th and 13th of August, the organizers have prepared summer musical evenings. From 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., music programs are provided. The guests of Oreshak village will be able to listen to favorite Bulgarian popular and folk songs. Nearby is the Troyan Monastery, so do not miss to pray for the miraculous icons in it. In fact, the tradition dates because of the nearness of the monastery, whose walls from the second half of the 18th century gather craftsmen in the days around the temple feast of the monastery – August 15th. The tradition continues to this day.

I love history, to walk through old cobblestone streets, to smell the air of the past times and to feel the legends in the air. And I'm lucky to have been born in a country with a glorious past and a lot of stories to tell. Bulgaria was founded more than 1,300 years ago and has never changed its name. But the life of people, their everyday habits, their traditions, their music and their art have changed over the centuries. I invite you to take a walk through the different ages of Bulgaria and to get to know it better.
