    Unique wedding ritual of the Bulgarian Muslims in the Rhodope mountains. The tradition didn't changed for 200 years!

    This is very interesting. I suppose these are Pomaks, right?

    Btw this looks like an heritage of ancient beliefs, before islam and christianity.

    Pomaks=Muslim Bulgarians.

    I can't explain the origins of these traditions. Do you have such things in Turkey?

    Another unique Bulgarian tradition from Strandja planina. It involves a barefoot dance on smouldering embers.

    It's a pagan Slavic tradition/ritual; in Serbia it's 'Bele Poklade'... from what I know Croats have it too.
