Start your day from Sofia at 9:00 AM and take a 45 min drive to Pernik. At 10:00 AM, the Kukeri (elaborately costumed Bulgarians) will begin their parade and can enjoy their performances (each group of Kukeri will have their own performance). Explore Pernik main square, the scene for many local dances, singing, and performance in traditional costumes. The performances are different every day. There will be singing, dancing and roses all over the town. Visit the many craft shops where you can see or buy different hand made objects and places to eat where you will certainly enjoy Balkan grill and pickled salads - gherkins, cabbage, peppers, green tomatoes etc. Of course you should not miss to try Bulgarian ketchup called lutenitsa but much tastier, garnished with red wine. Then, drive back to Sofia and return around 6:00 PM.
