You will also be able to see the open-air exhibition of traditional wool and cotton carpets. Of course, a festival can not go without music, so the organizers have planned a rich program with the participation of folk groups and ensembles and the singer Rumyana Popova.

The holiday will end with impressive fireworks that will burst at exactly 10:00 p.m. The coupon will continue from 6 p.m. the next day with a music program. Chiprovtsi carpets are famous all over the world for the deftly woven geometric figures of humans, animals, and birds in red, black, yellow, blue, brown and green. Initially, the carpets were only red-black, but later the color palette they made was enriched. On some of the carpets, ladies centuries ago wore their year of production. Chiprovtsi carpets are also recognized by UNESCO as part of the world cultural heritage.
