The Castle and Martenitza Day

It is a brilliant way to prepare The Castle for the Traditional Martenitsa's Day spending hours in The National Ethnographic Museum.


We experienced the rural lifestyle and folk culture of Bulgaria from the 17th-19th centuries on a short visit to the museum. At the tour we have a chance to explore the museum’s folk exhibits, to touch wool, cotton, silk cocoon, wooden tools and toys. We have learnt the legend for the first Martenitsa. We are ready now to make red and white threads for our unique martenitsas for the 1st March.
