Bulgaria is the oldest country in Europe that hasn't changed its name since it was first established. Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, was founded 7000 years ago.
On this day in 1885 in Plovdiv, after a military coup, a temporary government was formed, which announced the accession of Eastern Rumelia to the Principality of Bulgaria.
6th of September is the day on which the actual unification of the Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia takes place. An act that gave the country of Bulgaria the right to return to its borders, lands, that historically belong to it. The Act of Union received diplomatic and international recognition in 1886.
