Holy Week has begun and Orthodox Christians in Bulgaria are preparing to welcome the Resurrection of Christ. Among other preparations, many towns and cities are being transformed for the holiday with art bazaars and workshops on Easter decorating and egg dyeing.






The traditional Easter workshops of the National Ethnographic Museum in Sofia continue until April 12, where children aged 7 and over can take part. They will learn about the technique of Easter egg dyeing.

An Easter Art Bazaar was held in Sofia, where more than 60 craftsmen and artists presented their works dedicated to Palm Sunday and Easter. On Easter eve, bazaars are organized in many cities across the country.
