Join us for an adventurous trip up to Vitosha mountain, a volcanic mountain massif on the outskirts of Sofia, to experience Bulgaria’s living heritage at Vodenitsata. Enjoy the rustic setting with live performances of traditional singing and dancing.

Appreciate exquisite, regional cuisine while witnessing Nestinari, a fire ritual passed on over the centuries.

Vodenitsata translates into “The Watermill” and invites you to get familiar with Bulgaria’s folk heritage, which plays a highly visible role in the Bulgarian society. It is also the only place in Sofia offering the barefoot fire dance called Nestari.
