Fire dancing / walking on fire / Strandja

Once again Strandzha Bulgari village became a place of execution of an ancient custom - Fire dancing. Traditionally, on June 3, people from the village and the region marked by fire rituals feast of St Constantine and St Helena.

Like every time since dawn began preparing the feast. Once again, the icons of saints were "dressed" in their own costumes and carried in turn by Ayazmoto to the place of games. Fire-dancing in the evening passed one of the few remaining fire-dancers.

Fire dancing is entered in the World list of Masterpieces of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.
