Bulgarian Language Exam: Done


On May 24, nine bachelor students of the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting studying the Bulgarian language successfully passed the final exam. The exam coincided with the Day of Slavic Literature and Culture, which is celebrated in all Slavic countries annually on May 24.

The origins of this holiday are connected with Saints Cyril and Methodius, the creators of the Slavic alphabet. Scientists believe that Slavic writing was created around 863 AD. The new alphabet was called “Cyrillic” after one of the brothers, Constantine, who, having become a monk, became Cyril. And his elder brother Methodius helped him in the education of the Slavic peoples.

The legacy of Cyril and Methodius had a huge impact on the culture of the Slavic states: Bulgaria, Rus', Serbia, the Czech Republic, Croatia.

At the state level, the Day of Slavic Literature and Culture was first solemnly celebrated in 1863, in connection with the 1000th anniversary of the creation of the Slavic alphabet by Saints Cyril and Methodius. In the same year a decree was adopted on the celebration of the Day of Memory of Saints Cyril and Methodius on May 11 (24th new style).
