News about VeloHora reached the Fairy Kingdom, and our favorite magical characters are getting ready for a journey to see this miracle and wonder with their own eyes. And finally all of them arrived to the capital, right in the center of VeloHora: gracious Harap Alb, and funny Păcală and Tândală, and wise Sfânta Duminică, and irritable Muma Pădurii, and playful Prichindelul, and touching Andrieş, and tricky Michiduţă, and terrifying Împăratul Roşu, and bragging Peneş Împărat, and of course beautiful and cheerful Făt-Frumos and Ileana Cosânzeana.

And what adventures did they have and how were they learning to ride a bike you will find out on June 4th.

You will also enjoy a live sound of rare traditional musical instruments: bucium, cimpoi, caval, cobză etc. Folk groups from all over the Moldova will perform for you: doina, choirs, cheerful songs, playful jokes, sârba, moldoveneasca, traditional bătutele, shepherds - a kaleidoscope of songs.
