June 1 is one of our favorite holidays precisely because it is the day when we celebrate the carefree attitude and freedom and at least for a while we are transported to the magical world of children. International Children's Day in Bulgaria is traditionally full of fun, smiles, colorful balloons and treats. And as an obligatory detail of the holiday is the time spent with our favorite children.

This year the different municipalities in the country organize a number of events on the occasion of Children's Day, which you can visit with your kids. Here are the most interesting suggestions we came across:
