Bulgarian & Chiprovtsi Carpet Weaving

Unravel the ancient mystery of Chiprovtsi carpet weaving while learning Bulgarian in the town of Chiprovtsi


"Lingua Viva Bulgaria" in collaboration with "Tchushkarcheto" offers a unique experience at the foot of the Chiprovtsi Mountain. Local weavers will unveil the mystery of the looming of Chiprovtsi carpets, recently enlisted in global intangible cultural heritage, and will reveal the subtlety of the craftmanship. The innovative language and activity workshop will give you the chance to learn and practice Bulgarian with a great deal of cultural awareness. More precisely, you will learn how to introduce yourself and maintain a conversation in Bulgarian, basic notions typical for the Bulgarian culture, proverbs, et cetera.

According to your specific requirements, we will develop a tailor-made language course skillfully combined with weaving activities.
