Days to go: 

Bulgaria Unification Day celebrates the historical merging of Eastern Rumelia and the Principality of Bulgaria. This observance commemorates the reunification that led to the establishment of the modern Bulgarian state in 1885, expanding Bulgaria's territory and solidifying its presence in Eastern Europe. The event carries great historical and cultural significance for the Bulgarian people, and serves as an opportunity to foster a sense of national pride and unity.

While the unification took place in the 19th century, it ties into Bulgaria's journey towards European integration, which culminated in the country becoming a member of the European Union (EU) in 2007. As one of the youngest EU member states, Bulgaria has since navigated its integration into the European political, economic, and social fabric. Unification Day thus finds resonance with the wider EU audience as it not only speaks to Bulgaria's turbulent past but also underscores its commitment to a united Europe, and the resilience of the Bulgarian people who have weathered both divisions and unifications throughout history.

Within the EU, the Bulgarian community and its various organizations often hold events on Unification Day to highlight their culture and history, honor their past, and strengthen ties with their European neighbors. Such observances take the form of cultural activities, historical re-enactments, and exhibitions showcasing the diverse traditions of Bulgaria. The aim is to foster mutual understanding and appreciation among EU citizens of different nationalities while showcasing the cultural richness of the Bulgarian diaspora. It is celebrated annually on September 6.
