Ambassador Konstantin Dimitrov invited Medical Doorway to join the celebrations at the Bulgarian Embassy in London.

Ben Ambrose (CEO of Medical Doorway) was invited by His Excellency Ambassador Konstantin Dimitrov. The embassy hosted an exhibition of Bulgarian art as well as a performance by actor Vasil Banov. Bulgarian diaspora and others connected to the embassy came together for this memorable evening. As well as the cultural presentations there was an opportunity to enjoy traditional Bulgarian food and wine.

Meanwhile in Bulgaria, Medical University Pleven students enjoyed a break from their studies to commemorate this occasion. The Russo-Turkish War which paved the way for Bulgarian independence took place between 1877-1878.
