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. The date of March 3 was declared a National holiday in 1890. This year marks the 142 years anniversary of the liberation of Bulgaria. Find the festive program in Veliko Tarnovo down below.
