Bulgaria: Bulgaria Celebrates 129-th Anniversary Of Its Unification United Bulgaria - a lithography by Nikolai Pavlovich (1835-1894)

On Saturday, September 6, Bulgaria celebrates the 129-th anniversary of the unification of  Principality of Bulgaria and the then-Ottoman province of Eastern Rumelia in the autumn of 1885.

It was co-ordinated by the Bulgarian Secret Central Revolutionary Committee (BSCRC). The Unification was accomplished after revolts in Eastern Rumelian towns, followed by a coup on 18 September (old-style 6 September) 1885 supported by the Bulgarian Knyaz Alexander I. 
Traditionally, the largest celebrations will take place in the city of Plovdiv, the then main city of the Eastern Rumelia province, where the Unification was declared. 

Bulgaria's President Rosen Plevneliev, caretaker PM Georgi Bliznashki and other  representative of the local and executive powers, will attend the traditional parade and fireworks event at the central Saedinenie (Unification) square in Plovdiv. 

The Sofia Military Museum will unveil a new exhibition, entitled “Sofia – the Capital of Unified Bulgaria” and the entrance to all exhibitions will be free. 

Cities and towns across Bulgaria will mark the anniversary with various events, parades and ceremonies.
