The event is part of the program for the spiritual holiday of Vidin - St. Dimitar's Day, the first step towards the creation of a House of Bread in Vidin. In the exhibition could be seen ritual breads, a bread-brewing workshop, a presentation and a discussion on "A Tale of Bread". The exhibition was exhibited at the „Mihalaki Georgiev“ Regional Library, which included the Chitalishte - members of the Fund.
The event was opened by Deputy Mayor of Humanitarian Activities and Social Policy of Vidin Municipality Ventsi Paskov. He congratulated all participants and guests and announced that some of the breads presented in the exhibition will go to the people who enjoy the "hot lunch" service on the project of the Municipality.
Presentation on "Bread is a traditional culture", prepared by Desislava Bozhidarova, curator of Ethnography Department of Regional History Museum in Vidin, narrated about kneeling traditions and rituals. The bread symbolizes the eternal circle of life and home hearth. As in the past, today's bread is defined as a sacrament.
Visitors enjoyed the crafty breads. They had the opportunity to take care of themselves, to bring and bake at home.
