The Kuker is the traditional Bulgarian carnival character. Men, dressed as scary creatures, wearing elaborate masks, lots of fur and “chan” bells tied to their waists, perform rites for health and fertility. Their impressive dances aim to chase away winter and evil, welcoming the warmth and happiness of upcoming spring.
