Bulgarian traditional dress can often be seen during traditional festivals. These women and men are celebrating Carnival, or Kukeri, in Pernik.

Heavy, black, embroidered aprons adorn the red skirts of the Bulgarian ladies in this photo. They wear white blouses under their traditional overshirts that also carry thick embellishments.
