Galichnik Wedding

Name: Galichnik Wedding
Location: Galichnik, near Debar

One of the most interesting events during the summer months in the Miyak region is the traditional Galichnik Wedding. It is an annual event that involves wedding festivities that last for 5 days with the main activities on St. Peter's Day (12 July).
Every year a couple (with ancestors from the village) is selected to have their wedding celebration in the traditional Galichnik style. The bride and groom and all the participants in the wedding party are dressed in traditional woolen clothes and over five days and nights perform numerous religious and folklore rituals – the shaving of the groom, the wedding ring rituals, the dance of the bride, etc.
Visitors from all over the country and abroad visit Galichnik during these festivities to get a glimpse of the elaborate celebratory traditions that marked village life.
