Todorovden, also known as the Day of St. Theodore, is an ancient Bulgarian tradition that celebrates the patron saint of horses and horsemen. The festival is marked by a series of events, the most famous of which is the horse race, making it a unique and thrilling experience for visitors.
The Todorovden horse race is a test of skill and endurance that takes place in many Bulgarian towns and villages on May 6th each year. The race is open to both professional jockeys and amateurs, and is a spectacle that attracts thousands of visitors from around the world.
The race usually takes place over a distance of around 1 kilometer, with the horses and jockeys sprinting through the streets of the town or village. The race is a thrilling experience for both participants and spectators, as the horses and jockeys weave in and out of the crowds, making tight turns and pushing themselves to their limits.
Apart from the horse race, Todorovden is also celebrated with traditional Bulgarian folk music, dancing, and food. Visitors can enjoy traditional dishes such as roasted lamb, banitsa (a savory pastry filled with cheese and spinach), and a variety of Bulgarian wines and rakias (a traditional fruit brandy).
The festival is also a time for people to honor and bless their horses, as St. Theodore is the patron saint of horses and horsemen. It is common for people to bring their horses to the local church to be blessed, and for the local priest to sprinkle holy water on the horses to protect them from illness and injury.
Todorovden is not just a celebration of the past, but also a way of preserving and promoting the local way of life. The festival helps to support the local community by showcasing their traditional crafts, food, and customs, and by promoting rural tourism.
In conclusion, Todorovden is a unique and thrilling celebration of Bulgarian culture and heritage. The horse race, traditional food, music, and dancing create an unforgettable experience for visitors, and the festival is a wonderful opportunity to experience the local way of life and support the local community. So why not plan a visit to Bulgaria in May and witness the excitement of Todorovden for yourself?
