Kukeri Tradition, And How To Keep The Town Safe From Evil Spirits
The ‘Kukers’ are one of the oldest and most fascinating of the Bulgarian traditions.
Once a year, people all across the country will dress as these strange creatures to enter into parades and dancing. There are few kukeri festivals in different regions of Bulgaria, been the biggest one in Pernik – home to the International Bulgarian Festival of Masquerade Games, or ‘Surva’ Festival that has been included since 2015 in the UNESCO’s list of protected non-material cultural heritage .
