With colorful celebration for young and old, the team of the Ethnographic Museum in Burgas will surprise citizens and tourists tomorrow 24.06.2014 from 11:00.

Participants in the summer celebration will create together in the museum yard (Burgas, 69 Slavyanska St.) a large wreath of wild flowers and everyone will be able to go through it three times for health and prosperity.

The celebration will continue with reconstruction of parts of the traditional ritual Enyova bulya (Enyo's bride), as the children from the summer ecoschool of the Natural-History Museum "Adventure in the Museum" will create flowers from felt.
