A wreath and flowers will be served, and then the place where the Bulgarian poet and revolutioner Hristo Botev and his detachment boarded the Radetzky ship to visit Bulgaria and try to free the Ottoman Empire-born motherland will be visited.

I love to travel because of the encounters with diverse people and cultures and the chance to touch other worlds. And this can happen even without leaving the borders of your own country. For example, at a festival, you can travel thousands of years and dozens of borders without leaving your place. For me, the journey is not only beautiful landscapes and ancient landmarks but also thousands of human stories. Let's learn them together.
