On January 6th, Bulgaria celebrates “Yordanovden”. In the last years at this date salvation of the Epiphany cross has been organized in most cities of the country. At the event in the city of roses, 23-year-old Kazanlak citizen Stefan Noev rescued the cross from the cold waters of the Old River. YDCMA volunteers from France and Tunisia, as well as the Portuguese volunteer at the “United avangarde artist”, also witnessed this.
On this day, volunteers presented flowers in front of the monument to Hristo Botev at Rosarium Park. Many citizens and local public took part in the event. In this way the young people learned more about Bulgarian traditions, customs and history, which is one of the main ideas of the European Solidarity Corps program.
