Culinary Weekends

Every year, the Rila Hotel organises a series of culinary weekends and due to popular demand, this year we have decided to expand the idea to full-on themed weeks!

This summer the program is rich and for every day of the week. It will cover everything from culinary adventures and kids’ activities, to adults’ entertainment. The program spans entertainment, educational activities, guest appearances and performances from the likes of: Ivaylo Shopski's "Father's Hearth" traveling community center, a concert by the Three Tenors, acting lessons and much more.

The Mediterranean Weekend offers our youngest guests an art studio, cannoli pastry course, Mediterranean dance lessons and adults can enjoy a concert by the Three Tenors.

The Balkan Weekend focuses on a pottery course, traditional banitsa cooking course, patriotism classes with the "Father's Hearth" Traveling Community Center for the children. Unique experiences for children can also be shared with parents. For adults, we have prepared a rich program from the Shivitsi Orchestra.

A Master Chef’s Weekend will keep the kids entertained with a class on magic tricks, cake-making pastry course and a homemade lemonade workshop. Parents can relax outdoors and enjoy a Bulgarian wine tasting served with a variety of bruschetta and crackers.
