Bulgaria's Capital Celebrates St. Sofia Day

Sofia News Agency, 17.09.2009

Bulgaria's capital celebrates Wednesday St Sofia Day - the date when the Orthodox world pays homage to the Holy Martyrs Sofia and her three daughters Faith, Hope and Love.

The flag of the capital will be hoisted at an official ceremony and a liturgy will be held in front of St. Sofia church.

In 1992 Sofia municipal council selected this date for Sofia's Day at the proposal of the then mayor.

Between 1979 and 1992 Sofia's Day was marked on April 3, the day when Sofia was pronounced Bulgaria's capital back in 1879.
