The holiday of horse racing and popular games Hederlez is the holiday that, according to the Gagauz tradition, marks the start of the New Year for raising cattle. That is why there is a real festival of horse racing, popular games and exhibitions of popular craftsmen from Gagauzia in Ceadir-Lunga on this day. Moreover, on Hederlez day, the largest horse exhibition in the country takes place at the “At Prolin” horse farm, where you will have the opportunity to see the elegant representatives of the Orlov breed. These and many other activities beautifully framed in the gagauz traditions await you at the Hederlez.
