Kazanlak charmed Paris again
Kazanlak, for the second time, enchants the French capital with its cultural and historical heritage, with the presentation of the first Bulgarian site, protected as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, announced the Press Center of the Kazanlak Municipality.
The Thracian tomb in Kazanlak was one of the highlights of a seminar-discussion on the preservation of Europe's cultural wealth, which took place at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The participation of the Municipality of Kazanlak in the event dedicated to Europe Day was at the invitation of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Bulgaria during the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Under the motto of 2018 - European Year of Cultural Heritage, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization met with representatives at the highest level from Brussels and UNESCO to debate on the governance and use of World Heritage sites by Member States.
On behalf of the organizers - the European Union Delegation to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and UNESCO, its head Rupert Schlegelmilch welcomed the meeting. He sent the message "Europe's cultural heritage is not just about the past, because it is a value that must be recognized and preserved as a common wealth for the future of Europe."
The echo of the spring of 2015 in the Parisian Louvre with the treasures of the Valley of Roses and the Thracian kings "The Epopee of the Thracian Kings - Archaeological discoveries in Bulgaria" is not forgotten in the French capital. Then the main accent in the large exposition from Bulgaria was the finds from the Thracian tomb in the Golyama Kosmatka mound and the bronze head of the Thracian king Sevt III, which caused undue interest.
Sunday School in Vidin
Sunday School opened today the Metropolitan of Vidin, Daniel, with priests. Teacher of the children will be Mrs. Elena Velkova from Berkovitsa, who will teach them theology, theoretical and practical activities in iconography, church music and manual labor.
By an idea from the distant 1914, in January 1922, a "Eparchial Spiritual Education" Fund was established in Vidin in order to contribute to spiritual education in the diocese and "to support and support the media and preachers of the spiritual education in the dioceses." The funds are then raised by grants from the budget of the Metropolitan's office, the monasteries and the candlesticks (50% of the gross product); revenue from the sale of charity brands; interest on the capital of the fund; from voluntary sacrifices, donations and wills. Funds are bought from the fund and scholarships are given to poor students and students from the diocese who attend spiritual seminars and the Faculty of Theology. Rewards are also given to preachers who carry special messages and church sermons in the diocese. The built-up Eparhia School in Vidin is thanks to a large donation of BGN 5 million, made by Tomo Lozanov (1853 - 1952) - a factory, trader, entrepreneur. In his diary, Vidin Metropolitan Neofit writes: "The fund of funds contains not only hundreds of budget revenues, but also thousands of donations from godly church patriots. The money from the above donation supports the construction of the buildings of the Bishopric, the Eparchial School and the church "St. Nikola "in Vidin.
Today, Metropolitan Vidin, Daniel, made the first step towards continuing the work of his predecessor, Metropolitan Neofit.
Sunday schools in the Vidin Diocese are functioning in Klisurski and Chiprovtsi Monasteries.
