Colors of Burgas - traditions, festivals, mentality and lifestyle

Habits and traditions of local people are quite peculiar and so they might look quite strange to some foreign travelers. For example, local people move their head from one side to another as a sign of agreement, and they can nod when they do not agree with the opinion of an interlocutor. As in the majority of countries these signs have completely the opposite meaning, unaware foreign tourists can be confused or misunderstand locals.

When exploring the city on foot, it is often possible to see small papers with photographs and names of dead people. This is an old tradition in this region – local people tread their deceased relatives with great respect and keep them in their memory. It is prohibited to remove photographs of deceased relatives from house facades. Tourists should also keep in mind that they shouldn’t take pictures of these photographs.
Politeness and frugality are among the most obvious traits of the national character. Tourists can see their reflection in virtually everything. It doesn’t matter how serious argument is, local people never raise their voice. They will keep defending their point of view in a very polite but, nevertheless, stubborn way. Local architecture is a wonderful example of local frugality – residential buildings resemble tiny fairytale houses. Charming small windows and doors only add elegance to the overall look. Inside, visitors will not find any massive items, even furniture looks elegant and airy. The design can be left unchanged in many theaters, dining venues, and shops for decades. This is also a sign of conservatism and careful approach to the interior design. When exploring local streets, it is impossible to fail to notice how tiny and clean they are. Spacious avenues are surrounded by perfect rows of trees and bushes and every flowerbed is a true piece of art. Copyright

Local culinary traditions are also not deprived of interesting peculiarities. The national cuisine is an unusual combination of various culinary trends. Some dishes will look exotic even for experienced foodies. For example, it is hard to find tarator soup in many countries of the world. This is a clod soup cooked from fermented milk and cucumbers. The soup tastes fresh and quite unusual. As it is hard to find it in other countries, tourists are recommended to give it a try. Locals are not very punctual but they are always ready to help. Tourists shouldn’t be offended if someone is late for a meeting because deliberation is also one of the main peculiarities of the national character in Burgas.

National traditions of Bulgaria

One of the most interesting features of the Bulgarian mentality is the way of consent. If practically in the whole world (with the exception of a few countries) it is accepted to nod your head in agreement, then the Bulgarians, on the contrary, are confirmed by a turn of the head to the left and to the right. And, on the contrary, negation is accompanied by a nod of the head from top to bottom. Such an unusual feature causes difficulties in dealing with foreigners, but it's quite easy to get used to this manner. There is a legend about the reasons for this tradition. If you believe it, in ancient times, the Turks, forcing the Bulgarians to change their faith, put a knife to their throats - if the Bulgarian responded with consent to renounce Christianity, he was cut off by his throat. Therefore, the locals had to be a bit inventive and changed the system of gestures. … Open
