The St. St. Cyril and Methodius National Library
One of the most beautiful Bulgarian hymns, March Ahead, Oh, Revived People, glorifi es the Holy Brothers Cyril and Methodius, the First Teachers, the inventors of the Slavonic-Bulgarian script. And May 24th, the Day of Letters, is one of the brightest Bulgarian holidays. The greatest number of homonymous schools in Bulgaria bear the names of Cyril and Methodius as a symbol of knowledge and progress. On May 24th we, the Bulgarians, wreathe spring fl owers into garlands and decorate the portraits of Cyril and Methodius, who built Bulgaria in the foundations of the Euro-Christian civilization already in the 9th century. Having created the Slavonic-Bulgarian script, the Slavic Apostles succeeded in convincing the Vatican that every nation had the right of public worship in their mother tongue, as a result of which Old Bulgarian was recognized as the third offi cial language in Europe (after Greek and Latin).
