Melnik Local Customs: 2 reviews and 2 photos


8 september at the monastery of Rozhen the Rozhen fair is organized and on 14 february the Trifon Zarezan Festival is held. The latter is to celebrate Saint Tifon, the patron saint of the vineyards. Wine producers start pruning their wines on this day and they pour wine on vine roots in the hope for a good harvest. Wine tasting is also done of course.
