Here is located one of the few preserved lagoons in Bulgaria, in which a big diversity of species live - invertebrates, fishes, plants.
How will we celebrate?
Active - anyone, who wishes can participate in the workshops for knitting with osier. The local master Stanko Kirov from Balgarovo will teach enthusiasts how to make screens, and place them on the path of the birds and to limit inconvenience for the birds from future visitors.
