The Kyustendil Spring is a sign for the city. It is organized by the Municipality of Kyustendil with a rich artistic program and participation of the most popular ensembles and performers. This is the first competition in Bulgaria for the most beautiful girl. In 1966, the tradition of choosing a young girl “Kyustendil Spring” was launched, accompanied by two runners-up. They symbolize the gentle step with which spring comes; youth and new hope, like the three nymphs – the Hariti / goddesses of fertility /.
