Mummers from Bulgaria

Kukeri is a traditional Bulgarian ritual to scare away evil spirits. During this ritual, which is held in February, costumed men with masks and huge belts in their belts jump and dance in the streets. This postcard shows kukeri ritual in different parts of Bulgaria: Breznik, Pernik, Zemen, Yambol, Karlovo and Burgas.
