Bulgaria Pays Tribute to Enlighteners

Bulgaria marks on November 1 the National Enlighteners Day with a series of events organized all across the country.

As part of an initiative, launched six years ago by the President Georgi Parvanov, statesmen and citizens will gather in front of the Presidency in Sofia to bow heads, while the national flag will be solemnly hoisted.

Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Simeon Dyankov, and the Speaker of the Parliament, Tsetska Tsacheva, will travel to the central historical town of Tryavna to take part in the celebrations there.

Bulgaria has been celebrating the National Enlighteners Day as a national holiday since 1922 and teachers and students have seen parades on this occasion since the 1930s.
