Gerana Village, The real story!
Sep 2019
This trip is great ,especially for a family with kids in tow, as there is plenty to admire of the Bulgarian traditional nationals, including a small zoo and lots of old craft hardware to admire, You are eventually seated in a large hall that resembles a barn, and are treated to a great set of traditional dancers accompanied by native musicians.
Later outside you can watch a fire dance ceremony, but for my money this dragged on too long in preparation, so my interest began to drain as it took so long to spread the embers out, along with the cod praying for strength / ability to endure the ritual by the shamen.
In between the dancing and fire walking, you are served with a four course meal accompanied by as much wine you can drink. The wine (red or white) is quite acceptable, but other types of drinks (beer / coke etc) you have to pay for, but water is on the table. You also get a shot of their strong Rakia.
Now the bad part......the food, you start with a shopska salad which is quite nice, but there's only so much cucumber you can stomach, the tomatoes are quite nice though, and the white cheese is a bit stingy!
Next course is a bean based soup that was bland and tasteless, then a main course of chicken and potatoes that was OK (just), and watermelon to finish with (yes, just a slice by itself, not very inspiring!
So all in all a decent nights entertainment, marred by a poor meal!

Great Entertainment
Sep 2019
Went with a group of 12 and were seated on benches around a table. First a shot of the local Rakia, then salad, bean soup, burger, chicken, potatoes and slaw followed by melon. All, although basic traditional food, it was delicious and very filling. We were supplied with two pottery jugs in our table which we filled from a red, and white wine barrels, also bottles of water were supplied on the table. The dancing, which was traditional for the area was very entertaining, as was the complete show. The fire walking for me a bit of an anti climax. The toilets were very clean and all the ‘staff’ were friendly and courteous. A good night had by all and for only 40 lev.

traditional village trip
Jun 2019 • Family
This is the first visit to gerana village in bulgaria. Approx half an hour from sunny beach. Tickets approx 45 lev, 4 course meal and unlimited wine, straight from the barrel.
There is traditional music, fire dancing, and a kids show. It was worth a visit.

Was ok, not more or less
Aug 2018 • Couples
We arrived and we were super curious. Unfortunately it starts with some games like on a kids birthday. That was irritating. The food was ok, nothing really special. They danced than a while, in different costumes, but always the same kind of music and dances. A little bit boring.

The crowed was full of kids, they are running around and ignored all the show. That was irritating and not fair for the rest of the visitors.

I can’t recommend it.

'Traditional'??
Jun 2018 • Couples
A short bus trip (approx 30 mins) took us to Gerana village. We were given bread and spices upon arrival which is tradition in the area we were told. The four courses were of poor quality, tasteless and far from traditional, which was very disappointing. The wine was well watered down too. The first part of the entertainment was painful to sit through and the second part was a lot of banging on drums. The dancers were quite good though but it just went on a bit too long. The entertainment finished with a man raking a fire whilst roaring in some language and then walking over it- fair duce to him though. Overall, the staff were nice and the dancers put on a good show. Speaking Russian is definately an advantage for going here!
