24 years later, the day was officially declared International Children's Day. And in 1950, June 1 was celebrated simultaneously in 51 countries around the world for the first time.

Various cultural events, educational initiatives and lots of entertainment for children are organized in Bulgaria throughout the day.

For the holiday and this year, Bulgarian Railways is giving a free trip to all children under the age of 14 today.

"Children's holiday on Slaveykov Square" is organized by the Metropolitan Library and "Vazrazhdane" theater - with the performance "Red Riding Hood". There will also be entertaining games and an exhibition "Children's periodicals published before 1944".

At 10 o'clock in the park space in front of the National Palace of Culture, an event will be held under the patronage of the Ministry of Education and Culture - within the framework of the Book Fair held there.

Acting Prime Minister Galab Donev will meet with first graders from the capital's 60th elementary school "St. St. Cyril and Methodius" today. Together with the children, he will plant flowers.
