The young people, the founders of the newest organization for the preservation of our traditional heritage, invite everyone to try a unique 5-day experience in the Rhodope village in August. The time spent in the countryside will be distributed between summertime rest and walks, a touch of local traditional culture and several hours of work to help the village every day.
"One of the most typical social manifestations of the Rhodopean Bulgarians is the mezzo - a traditional form of mutual assistance. The first to go were the girls and the bachelor party, dressed like a choir. For them, the mezzo was a great fit to look at each other, to bendis (like). When one set out to build a house with only his mule (let there be two and three), he could not obtain stones, slabs, or timber. In that case, his village ran to the rescue. "
(from the memories of Slavcho Dichev)
