Bulgaria Unification Day History

Unification Day in Bulgaria celebrates the unification of the previously split Bulgaria. On 6 September 1885, the separated regions of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia were reunified into one Bulgaria. Seven years earlier, following the liberation of Bulgaria from the Ottoman Empire, the San Stefano Treaty and the Berlin Treaty had split the country into two regions. Bulgarians fought to have these regions reunified and the unification was eventually prepared by a network of secret revolutionary committees backed by the Bulgarian King.

Bulgaria's Unification Day is celebrated annually as a public holiday on 6 September in order to mark the unification of the two previously split regions of the nation.
