Hundreds of Sofia citizens joined a huge procession to take the relics of St George to the rotunda church by his name in Bulgaria's capital.

The relics are a gift from Rome, and were presented to Neofit, Bishop of Ruse, who will take them to the Danube city on Monday.

Knowing that they only have a day to bow before the sacred relics many Bulgarians rushed to the rotunda, eager to see the golden cross that is adorned with precious stones.
