During our visit there was a great deal going on, the locals were celebrating Lazarus Saturday! Or ‘The Saturday before Orthodox Easter’ - it was a carnival out the front - fairy floss, toffee apples, sweets and all the children were wearing ribboned garlands in their hair and bells around their necks.
Probably a lot more too it than that, we quizzed our guide during the free walking tour and even he was a bit in the dark - mainly it’s a devotion to traditions verses a huge devotion to their religion - but still fun to see (there was a huge queue to go in, it being a big day and all, so just took a peek from the doorway). Still it was a nice experience
