133 years since the Unification of the Principality of Bulgaria and the Province of Eastern Rumelia

On September 6, 1885 Bulgaria managed to oppose the decisions of the Great Powers at the Berlin Congress and to return Eastern Rumelia within the borders of the Principality of Bulgaria without any external help. This great political conquest of the Bulgarian people is a day of unification, a national act and the first firm claim for an independent, equal participation of Bulgaria in the modern history of Europe.

On the occasion of the 133rd anniversary of the Unification of the Principality of Bulgaria and the Province of Eastern Rumelia, the National History Museum and the National Museum of Military History announced that on September 6 everyone will be able to visit the museums for free.

In Sofia the 133rd anniversary of the Unification of Bulgaria will be celebrated on September 6 in front of the mausoleum and final resting place of Prince Alexander I of Battenberg.

The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary or Nativity of Mary is one of the greatest feasts of the Orthodox Church and the first feast of the Church’s New Year - September 1. On this day we celebrate the birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the family of Anne and Joachim.

Holy Cross Day- The Universal Exaltation of the Precious and Life Giving Cross

The Bulgarian Orthodox Church celebrates the Exaltation of the Holy Cross four times a year – on the 3rd Sunday of the Great Lent (the Veneration of the Cross), on Good Friday, on August 1 and on September 14.

The feast celebrates several events - Constantine the Great's Vision of the Cross, the finding of the Cross and its return to Jerusalem from Persia after a 14-year captivity.

Bulgarians believe that on this day the day and the night are of equal length and that it marks the beginning of autumn – the weather becomes cooler and people start preparing for winter. On September 14 is also the day of the Bulgarian firefighters.

Holy Martyrs Saint Sophia and her Daughters Faith, Hope and Love

On September 17 the Church honors the holy martyrs Saint Sophia and her daughters Faith, Hope and Love and the virtues that they represent – faith, hope, love and wisdom.

Legend has it that in the second half of the second century, a pious Christian woman named Sophia lived in Rome. She had three daughters that were named after various Christian virtues – Faith, Hope and Love. Because of their faith and love of God, the family was tortured and then killed during the Persecution of Christians in the time of Emperor Hadrian.

Since 777, the relics of the holy martyrs Sophia, Faith, Hope, and Love have been kept in a small temple in Eschau, France.

Every person named after the holy martyrs celebrates their name day on this date. The Bulgarian capital also celebrates as St Sophia is the patron-saint of the city. The feast will be celebrated in front of St Sophia Basilica where the official ceremony of raising the flag of Sofia and Blessing of Water will take place.

110 years since the Proclamation of the Independence of Bulgaria

On September 22, 1908 with a manifesto by the Bulgarian Knyaz Ferdinand the Independence of Bulgaria was proclaimed in Veliko Tarnovo. In this way, the last vassal ties with the Ottoman Empire were severed. The Principality of Bulgaria became an independent country ruled by Tsar Ferdinand and Turkey followed by the Great Powers accepted officially the Bulgarian independence.

Bulgaria – one of the oldest countries in Europe, was put again on the world map after five centuries of Ottoman domination. Independence Day was declared a public holiday by the National Assembly on September 10, 1998.

In Sofia the holiday will be celebrated on September 22, at 11 am in front of the Independence monument (near the National Art Gallery – the Palace, in Knyaz Alexander I Square).
