Vardavar Tour - GO TRAVEL
OVERVIEW

Vardavar Tour


Vardavar's history dates back to pagan times. Vardavar is currently celebrated 98 days (14 weeks) after Easter. During the day of Vardavar, people from a wide array of ages are allowed to douse strangers with water. It is common to see people pouring buckets of water from balconies on unsuspecting people walking below them. The festival is very popular among children as it is one day where they can get away with pulling pranks. It is also a means of refreshment on the usually hot and dry summer days of July.
