Kafkasor Bullfighting
Artvin, with its unique Kafkasor bullfights which offer scenes of breathtaking excitement, as well as its other festivals and feasts, is a region that should on no account be missed. The most interesting part of the festival held on the third week of June every year is the bullfighting. Bulls from all parts of the province are classified according to the thickness of their necks or weight, and pitted against one another. Certain rules have been applied since the bullfights first began in order to protect bulls from injury and suffering. When the weaker bull withdraws from the arena, that defeat is accepted and it is taken out of the arena by the people in charge.

In this way, Kafkasor bullfights have become an atmosphere of sports and entertainment with their own rules. This type of bullfight is unique, and a defining characteristic of the whole region.
