the National Enlightener’s Day
On 1 November, we celebrate one of the brightest Bulgarian holidays - the National Enlightener’s Day! The names of eminent Bulgarians who we proudly call national enlighteners shine in the treasury of our national history and culture. Noble personalities, brave spiritual leaders, educators, writers and revolutionaries, set out to "awaken" the people, to ignite the spark of knowledge in the soul and mind. Our mission today is to keep and preserve Bulgarian spirituality; to transmit the longing for the vast and beautiful world of knowledge, science and art.
