The March of the Universities of Varna

For the first time in the recent 20 years, for the Day of the Slavonic Literacy and Culture – 24th May – all Universities in Varna marched together all the way from the Cathedral to the Sea Gardens. Accompanied by the Naval brass band, the march of the five Varna universities was headed by a representative bloc, consisting of the Rectors and the academic management bodies. The citizens of Varna had the unique opportunity to see the representatives of the academic communities in their authentic academic garments – togas and uniforms with the respective academic attributes and tokens of every university.

The march of the universities finished with a musical and artistic programme presented by a specially designed stage at the entrance of the Sea gardens. Here, after the solemn liturgy of Metropolitan Kiril, the students from Varna Medical University, the Economics University, Varna Free University, the Higher Naval School and the Technical University demonstrated their various skills and talents. For all the participants in the march the Organisers envisaged a treat for the holiday and promised a lot of music, dances, artistic and spring spirit.

The initiative for the participation of the Varna universities in the traditional march on the occasion of 24th May was given by the rectors and aims at consolidating the reputation of the city as an academic centre attracting students not only from Bulgaria but from all over the world.
