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.
The pinnacle in celebrations will be the change of guards in front of the Presidency, always intriguing for citizens and visitors of the capital Sofia with the handsome uniformed soldiers and their exquisite stroll.
Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Simeon Djankov, and the Speaker of the Parliament, Tsetska Tsacheva, will travel to the central historical town of Tryavna to take part in the celebrations there. The ceremony also includes the hoisting of the national flag in front of the house of Bulgarian revolutionary Angel Kanchev and an official meeting of the Town Hall.
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.
