The Institute of Politics presented flowers for the feast day of the town of Pernik. The students from ‘Simeon Veliki’ class were invited to the official celebration personally by Emil Kostadinov, Mayor of Iztok quarter, who also participates in the current training course.

On June 26, 1929, Tsar Boris III issued a decree by which Pernik village municipality was transformed into an urban one. The exploitation of the coal basin, which started in 1891, has given a strong impetus for the development of the area. Because of the mining development in Pernik, a considerable part of the country’s highly educated people settled in the town and transferred the European experience in production management, the town planning, the organisation of the social and cultural activities.

A rich program has been prepared for the jubilee. More than 500 artists and a representative guards unit participated in the program and led the festive parade

There were concerts, exhibitions, a fashion show throughout the day. To celebrate the jubilee there was a first sod-turning ceremony of the second round crossing ring in the Ladovitsa area in the Iztok quarter. Prizes were also awarded for contribution to the construction and establishment of Pernik as a modern city.

On the celebration day of Pernik, young people from the local organisation of GERB handed out scrolls with a decree 402 to Tsar Boris III. Mayor of the city Vyara Tserovska received the first one. The initiative crowned the end of the campaign “The Unknown Pernik”, with which the young people presented 90 curious and little-known facts about the history of the millennial settlement.
