the National Enlightener’s Day

31 October 2020

Dear partners and friends of Varna Free University,
Dear colleagues,
Dear students,

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. And in times of trial, to find a way to lead our students and pass on knowledge!
Dear lecturers,
On the eve of the National Enlightener’s Day, allow me to congratulate you on your devotion and the flame with which you transmit knowledge! Let us wish to develop the creative and innovative potential of young people, to preserve our centuries-old traditions and values, and to transfer them to the digital world. 
Dear students, 
get educated! Carry in your mind and heart the flame bequeathed to us by the enlighteners!
Happy holiday!

Prof. Petar Hristov, PhD
Rector of VFU "Chernorizets Hrabar"
