Celebrate July Morning, the first morning of July is tradition, unique to Bulgaria. Is observed in honor of freedom, friendship, and the love of life. Although July Morning started as a seaside event, today it is observed in various parts of the country, mainly on river or lake banks and high viewpoints with majestic sunrise watching opportunities.
If you want to celebrate July Morning like a Bulgarian, you will have to hitchhike to your final destination. You may want to start a day earlier to enjoy the slow journey and to meet people along the way. New friends will wait for you by the campfire at a wild beach and at least one of them will bring a guitar. You will drink and sing, and share moments of carefree happiness all night long. When the sun is about to show on the horizon, you will play the “July Morning” song.
