Giant Bulgarian Horo Dance Takes Place in Brussels

A Giant Bulgarian Horo wound around Grand Place in Brussels on Sunday for the second year in a row. 

The traditional chain dance involved Bulgarians and people from other countries of the Balkans, Europe, and the world, the Ministry for the Bulgarian Presidency of the EU Council reported.

Greeting the dancers, Bulgarian EU Presidency Minister Liliyana Pavlova said: "I am proud that, as part of our cultural calendar, we are able to present Bulgaria's traditions, culture, and folklore."

Pavlova said:

 "As members of the European Union for 11 years now, we have been contributing to Europe's cultural diversity. We are worthy Europeans, we have things to show and things to be proud of. The other Balkan nations have joined us in this event as a full-fledged part of Europe. I believe this helps to make Europe united and stronger for the sake of our children."

The Giant Bulgarian Horo was part of the Balkan Trafik Festival which is underway in the Belgian capital. The festival is the biggest Balkan music forum in Western Europe.
