In 2014, the British Embassy marks the centenary of its residence, one of the most iconic buildings in Central Sofia.
To celebrate the occasion, the embassy is launching a series of events to mark the strong connections between Britain and Bulgaria.
The celebrations will go on throughout 2014 and explore and further develop the trade and business opportunities between the two countries, as well as adding to the understanding of the common historical, cultural and heritage connections between the British and Bulgarian people.
One of the main elements of the celebrations is the 100 Years UK in BG blog. It will feature memories from British nationals who have lived or are still living in Bulgaria. The personal stories will help build a human picture of the way British people have seen and experienced Bulgaria. The embassy would like to hear from them. Perhaps why and how they fell in love with the country, and what cultural differences they have come across. The embassy wants their funny and happy stories, but also their sad stories. It can be anything from a single memory to a picture or a video that captures experiences of Bulgaria to the thing they will miss most if they leave one day. Even better if it is accompanied by a picture of Bulgaria that illustrates stories and feelings about the country.
Vagabond, Bulgaria's English Magazine, is very happy to cooperate in this great initiative and will have the best stories as well as the best photos published in both the print and the electronic versions of the magazine on a monthly basis. If you are sending pictures, please bear in mind that we will need high resolution images fit for print.
