The rest can just watch and have fun. In both cases we will be part of the festival. This is part of the message of the first ever online festival in Bulgaria, which as the name suggests will take place entirely online!

On March 3, 1878, the Peace Treaty between Russia and the then Ottoman Empire was signed, ending the Russo-Turkish War, which began in 1877 and thus marked the beginning of the Third Bulgarian State.
