Bulgaria: Bulgarians Pay Tribute to Botev and the Dead Heroes of Bulgaria bnt.bg

On today's date (June 2nd), we pay tribute to one of the greatest Bulgarians in our history - Hristo Botev, as well as to the heroes who gave their lives for the freedom of Bulgaria.

Hristo Botev was born in Kalofer in the family of the teacher Botyo Petkov and Ivanka Boteva. He was a Bulgarian poet and national revolutionary.

Traditionally just at 12:00, the sirens were released in the country and two minutes of silence occured in honor of the Bulgarian heroes. When a signal was given to all pedestrians and vehicles in the country (except trains) every the movement on the streets and squares stopped.
