Martenitsas for passengers at Sofia Airport

On the occasion of 1 March – Baba Marta (Grandma March) holiday, Sofia Airport and students of school “Ivan Bogorov” – Sofia organized a joint initiative. Dressed in folk costumes, the children gave martenitsas to the departing and arriving passengers. The event raised the spirits and provoked the smiles and interest of the foreigners who learnt about our tradition as early as upon their arrival to Bulgaria.

 

In acknowledgment of their efforts and commitment the children received a bag of sweets from Sofia Airport and a certificate of participation in the promotion of Bulgarian traditions.
