Easter Sunday in Bulgaria

Many Orthodox churches base their Easter date on the Julian calendar, which often differs from the Gregorian calendar that is used by many western countries. Therefore the Orthodox Easter period often occurs later than the Easter period that falls around the time of the March equinox.

Easter Sunday is on Sunday, April 28, 2019 and most businesses follow regular Sunday opening hours in Bulgaria.
