The preparation for the 13th edition of the sand sculptures festival in Bulgaria’s coastal city of Bourgas began.

Sand sculptors have already started working on their pieces.

Mowgli, King Kong and Godzilla are created by a family from the South Bulgarian city of Stara Zagora. Georgi Zlatev and his wide Annie have carved sand artworks for 13 years. They explained they never use reinforcing materials and seal the ready sculptures with glue.

The sculptures of the festival are expected to be ready by 15th of July.
