This is the time when the old calendar marks the church fest of St. St. Peter and Paul. The event is also called The Three-Border Fest, as it is held on the spot, where the borders of Bulgaria, Macedonia and Serbia meet. The municipalities of three border towns are co-organizers of the event – Bosilegrad / Serbia/, Kyustendil /Bulgaria/ and Kriva Palanka /Macedonia/. This year the congregation will be on July 12 with many dancing formations from the three countries participating.
