Water knows how to get on the path of the least resistance. It comes from above and reaches the depths of the Lower World. It connects the elements of the Universe vertically and horizontally and is never lost. It rotates in its cycle to rise up again and carries the collected from Down. And Down are the people with their thoughts, feelings, deeds, with their passions and sins, prayers and abominations. Water remembers and leads to God.In Bulgarian folklore, the water plays an essential role to unite the Universe. It comes from the Heavens and reaches the depths of the Underground world. It is on the border between Life and Death, Order and Chaos. That is why Bulgarian water has many names – alive, holy, sunny, silver, floral, silent, spoken, moon, love, good water… because water has a memory. This tour will follow the local faith of water.
