EC Day 2013 celebration
The second annual celebration of the European Cooperation Day under the Bulgaria-Serbia IPA Cross-border Programme took place on the 21st of September 2013 at Baba Vida castle in Vidin, Bulgaria. The celebration in the form of a medieval festival brought together performers from both Bulgaria and Serbia, including two associations for preservation of medieval arts and crafts - “Modus Vivendi” from Bulgaria and “Beli Orlovi” from Serbia, and the Balkan medieval music group “Eriney” from Bulgaria. The enthusiastic performers displayed great talent illustrating the rich and colorful past of the two countries through an open air exhibition of traditional arts and crafts, calligraphy, blacksmith, leatherworking and tailoring workshops, medieval games, a fighting tournament and even a live music concert of authentic medieval music from the Balkans.
