Celebrating 3rd March with Bulgaria

For the second year running Medical Doorway were invited to the Bulgarian Embassy in London for 3rd March celebrations. On this day in 1878, Bulgaria regained its independence after hundreds of years of Ottoman rule. To this day Bulgarians celebrate this day with a national holiday remembering their struggle for independence and to celebrate Bulgaria’s unique culture.

The event at the embassy took a slightly different approach this year. Invited guests were treated to a musical performance of traditional and contemporary Bulgarian music. An exhibition of famous artwork commemorating the battles that led to independence was on display through the embassy building. This included an element from the Pleven Panorama which commemorates the battle that was instrumental in the final defeat of the Ottoman empire in the country.
