Bare feet. Smoldering coals. The star-studded sky of Strandzha. The date is June 3. The place - the village of Bulgari. Under the sound of the drum and the pipe the nestinars enter into the hot embers. For thousands of years they keep the secrets of this mysterious ritual - from the time when the Thracian priests sought a connection with their gods.
Fire dancing is not just dance in the embers. It has collected legends, rituals, memories and predictions for the future.
