We had lots of fun and made great memories with our friends at the Bulgarian evening! Our evening started by being driven to a small village with a van. We did not know what to expect but our cheerful hosts Baba Iana and Baba Elena greeted us and made us feel like honored guests. They showed us the house and talked to us, even though we did not understand Bulgarian we felt we communicated very well. We got the traditional Rakiya as a welcome drink and from then on it got only better:) We had a big variety of delicious homemade traditional food, that was even tastier in the traditional environment. The hosts sang for us after dinner and let us get into traditional, beautiful Bulgarian costumes. We danced all together and took plenty of pictures of us. The two ladies were the perfect hosts for letting us get in touch with the Bulgarian culture in this unique and engaging way. It was definitely a highlight of our stay in Bansko!
