A speech from Ambassador Dimitrov highlighted the importance of intercultural exchange and how Bulgarian membership of the European Union has benefited Bulgaria and the European Community. Ambassadors from across the world were invited to this celebration which also included a toast to Bulgaria and Queen Elizabeth. Singing of the British and Bulgarian national anthems concluded the evening.

Meanwhile, in Medical University Pleven students enjoyed a break from their studies as Bulgaria celebrates it national day. This day commemorates Bulgaria’s independence from the Ottoman Empire which was proclaimed in 1908 following the Russo-Turkish War of 1877–1878. The main battle which led to the liberation of Bulgaria took place in Pleven and is commemorated at the Pleven Epopee which is the thrift largest panorama painting in the world.
