Slavic Dimensions Club Meeting Dedicated to Bulgaria's National Holiday - Day of Liberation from Ottoman Oppression


On March 3, 2020, the Cyril and Methodius Center of Karazin University Central Scientific Library held another meeting of the Slavic Dimensions Club, dedicated to the national holiday of Bulgaria — Day of Liberation from Ottoman Oppression.

The Associate Professor of the Department of Ukrainian Studies of the School of Philosophy Natalia Aksenova told about the history and peculiarities of celebrating the national holiday of Bulgaria — Day of Liberation from Ottoman Oppression. Those present learned that from 1396 to 1878, Bulgaria was part of the Ottoman Empire. After the bloody suppression of the April uprising in Bulgaria in 1876, Serbia and Montenegro also rose up, and later Russia joined the war.

Also, Natalia Aksenova mentioned the figure of Vasil Levski, who became an embodiment of the Bulgarian desire for freedom in this liberation war.

“On March 3, 1878, a peace treaty was signed in the town of San Stefano between the Russian and the Ottoman Empires, which put an end to the Russo-Turkish war. This day in Bulgaria is considered the beginning of creating the Third Bulgarian Kingdom,” she said.

The meeting participants also mentioned another Bulgarian holiday, which begins a new agrarian year. On this day, a two-color red and white amulet — “martenitsa” is given to loved ones.

Everyone willing had an opportunity to make their own "martenitsa" during a master class.
