Chestit 3-ti Mart! :) // Ден на Освобождението

Ден на Освобождението
(Liberation Day)

Happy March 3rd! Today commemorates the Liberation of Bulgaria from Ottoman rule, thanks to the The Treaty of San Stefano, signed between the Turkish Ottomans and Russia on this day in 1878, in San Stefano -- or what is now known as present-day Yesilkoy. This treaty, established Bulgaria's autonomy as a principality, and is the last step before Bulgaria was to fully achieve independence as a state much later in September of 1908.

The above is a video of some great footage, I love the music!! :)

Happy Liberation Day to all Bulgarians everywhere!
