Galichnik is located nearby of the Bistra Mountain, some 10 km from the Mavrovo Lake. Only couple of residents live in this mountain settlement. During the village’s annual wedding festival — held on the weekend nearest July 12, or St. Peter’s Day for Orthodox Christians — the population increases. Thousands of travelers and returning countrymen fill this village to be a part of the marriage ceremony of a previously selected couple with roots in the settlement. This year's Galichnik Wedding, will be held from 12th to 14th of July.

Musicians will be playing traditional horns and drums — called zurli and tapani . You can witness traditional music played for days, traditional clothes that dates from 300 years ago, symbolic ceremonies such as hanging a flag, firing a rifle, shaving the bridegroom on the main square.
