The unification of the Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia is a key episode in the emancipation of Bulgarian diplomacy since the end of the 19th century. On the occasion of the official holiday, the Day of the Unification of Bulgaria, the State Cultural Institute under the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Bulgarian National Radio send a virtual greeting to all Bulgarians and friends of Bulgaria around the world.
The specially realized video uses works from the repertoire of the Folk Music Orchestra of the BNR, which for 70 years has been preserving the rich folklore traditions for which Bulgaria is known around the world, and at the same time expanding musical horizons with the means of modern interpretation. The video also includes an address to Bulgarians abroad and their friends by the General Director of the BNR – Milen Mitev. The State Cultural Institute assists in spreading the virtual greeting among our compatriots through our foreign representations.
The initiative is part of the partnership between the two institutions, signed on July 12, 2022 between the Director of the DKI Snezhana Joveva-Dimitrova and the Director General of the BNR Milen Mitev with the aim of preparing, implementing and popularizing nationally and internationally significant cultural, social and educational initiatives .
The video greeting can be watched on the channels of:
