An exhibition in the Ethnographic Museum shows what dresses our grandparents have married in
Tuesday, 27 Feb 2018 - Ethnographical Museum
The guest exhibition "What your bride were you, Mommy?" presents how the bridal tradition of Bulgarians changed in the 20th century. The official opening is on March 1, 2018, at 17:00, at the Ethnographic Museum of RHM Burgas, located behind the church "St. St. Cyril and Methodius".

The exposition follows the tendencies in the bridal fashion during the 20th century, represented by bridal wear, wedding accessories, church plate and pictures collected by citizens of Dimitrovgrad. As in the middle of the last century people from more than 900 Bulgarian villages settled in the city, in practice the exhibition presents objects from all over the country.

The oldest bridal dress is from the beginning of the 20th century - a wedding dress with woolen top from 1915, combined with the traditional red veil and bridal wreath, and the newest is from 1999. The title of the exhibition is inspired by the poem of Pavel Matev "Letter to Mum", upon whose text Emil Dimitrov performs his unique song.

The exhibition from the Historical Museum of Dimitrovgrad will remain in Burgas until 14 May 2018.
