A royal documentary exhibition "In exile"
The exhibition "In Exile" with documents and photos donated by the last Bulgarian Tsar Simeon II in 2009 was opened on the Day of Archives and the Professional Holiday of Bulgarian Archivists in Vidin. The exhibition, prepared by the Archives State Agency, presents the life of the king after 1946 and his correspondence with rulers' families, exiled Bulgarian intellectuals, artists, clergy. Commitment abroad hinders the presence of Simeon II at the opening of the exhibition.
On 23 boards and in several windows, one can "look at the road" of the royal family expelled from Bulgaria, spent 50 years in exile. The rich archive of documents, albums, photos, postcards from various funds, greeting letters and telegrams exchanged between the Vidinians and the kings of Ferdinand and Boris III, tells of this. Photos from the visit of Simeon II to Vidin in 1996 and 2001 are also included.
Guests of the opening were: Vidin Metropolitan Daniil, Roumen Borisov, Deputy Chairman of Archives State Agency, Angelo Methodiev, Deputy Regional Governor, Ventsi Paskov, Deputy Mayor of Vidin Municipality and others.
Svetlana Krasteva, head of the Archives Department in Vidin, handed donations to the donors in 2017. Among them are: Assoc. Prof. Ivanka Ninova, Eng. Ljiljana Petrova, Roumen Manov, Racho Milanov and others.
