May 24 - Day of Bulgarian Education and Culture and the Slavonic Script

May 24 is one of the most popular Bulgarian national holidays - the Day of Bulgarian Education and Culture and the Slavonic Script.

The Day of the brothers of Thessaloniki St. Cyril and St. Methodius, the creators of the Glagolitic, is celebrated as a church celebration since the 12th century, but as the Day of Education it was first celebrated in 1851, in Plovdiv, on the initiative of Nayden Gerov.

On this day, with a sense of national pride, we pay tribute to all enlighteners, scientists, creators and best minds in Bulgarian history and present, who have contributed to the development of education and culture.

Happy holiday!
