Galicnik Wedding Festival
Galicnik Wedding Festival, Macedonia - the Wedding.              

The Galicnik Wedding Festival is an annual festival in which a selected Macedonian couple gets married in the traditional "Galichka" style wedding. It is held on St. Peter's Day (12 July) in Galicnik, a mountain village located on the slopes of the Bistra Mountain in the western part of Macedonia. The festivities last a few days.

Each year, many couples compete to be the selected couple of the festival. With its ancestral rituals, dances (including teskoto), and music, this cultural event in Macedonia attracts a lot of Macedonian and foreign tourists as well as many expatriates returning to their home countries for the celebration.
