Danube Day 2018 in Bulgaria

Bulgaria is marking Danube Day 2018 with a myriad of festivities including events in Vidin, Belene and Baykal in Dolna Mitropolia.

Each celebration has its own flavour. Join us in Vidin for concerts, competitions and art exhibitions; in Belene for culinary delights, quizzes, music and fishing contests and in Baykal to celebrate traditional customs and basin-wide solidarity. In all three locations, there will be interactive models to explore and information stalls to learn more about your Danube rivers.

Vidin & Belene: Monday 25th - Saturday 30th June 2018
Baykal: Monday 25th - Friday 29th June 2018

If you’re aged 6-18 years and love your rivers, don’t miss the chance to enter this year’s Danube Art Master
competition. The 14-country art extravaganza tasks children to create 3D artworks made from materials found by the river. Alternatively, you can make a 1-minute video on your ideas for sharing and protecting the Danube rivers. The Bulgarian round of the competition is organised by GWP Bulgaria (contact details below). Creators of the best artworks will go on to the international Danube Art Master final later in the year.
