With a wreath laid at the monument of Vasil Levski, the leadership of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences will pay tribute to the deed of one of the brightest personalities in our national pantheon.

We would like to remind you that one year ago the President of BAS Prof. Julian Revalski, Member of the Academy, proposed that the airport in Sofia was named after Vasil Levski. “With this act we will all express to the greatest extent our respect to the national hero of Bulgaria who has contributed immensely to the revival of the Bulgarian spirit and the liberation of our Fatherland. Apart from being a cosmopolitan personality, the Apostle was also one of the donors in the founding of the Bulgarian Learned Society in 1869 whose successor is the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences,” says Prof. Julian Revalski.

At 17:00 on 19 February (Monday) in the “St. Sofia” church a memorial service will be held  in memory of hierodeacon Ignatius – Vasil Levski. At 18:00, a commemorative ceremony will take place in front of the Monument to the Apostle of Freedom.
