From 21st to 28th of September, the city of Burgas (Bulgaria) will host the European Gymnastics festival for people over fifty: the Golden Age Gym Festival! The Golden Age Gym Festival is not only a week of recreation, but offers also the possibility to all participants to improve their abilities, to discover new activities and cultures, sports and make new friendships. The Festival has the purpose to inform the representatives of the European National Federations about gymnastics benefits and let them experience different gym related activities.
