The Bulgarian saint-educator is one of the closest disciples of Sts. Cyril and Methodius, called "enlightener of the Bulgarians". St. Naum was among the spiritual leaders who laid the foundations of the first literary school in Bulgaria’s first two capital cities of Pliska and Preslav, a school that for many centuries radiated cultural impulses to the huge region populated by the Eastern and Southern Slavs. Later on, having been sent by Knyaz Simeon to the South-Western part of the Bulgarian state, he completed a grandiose missionary civilization program in Ohrid and, together with St. Kliment, founded the famous Literary School of Ohrid. St. Naum thus became one of the first teachers, writers and church leaders who shone the light of their spirit over the Bulgarian lands and created the Golden Age of Bulgarian culture.
The exhibition presents medieval literary sources and images of ancient churches and monasteries. Well advocated is the subject on the contemporary understanding of St. Naum's cult, who led to the establishment of many 20th and 21st century churches bearing his name.
The exhibition will open at 18:00 hours, immediately after the start of the Night of Museums. Special guests will be Academician Nikola Sabotinov and Phd.Slavia Barlieva of BAS.

Among our Bulgarian customs, Lazaruvane is truly outstanding. It is based on ancient rites connected with the spring time awakening of nature. The so called Lazarus games (bg: Lazarski igri) are one of the most joyful and poetic expressions of the Bulgarian spirit.
This ritual involves young girls (called "lazarki") who are about to get married. They go round the village houses in groups and sing special “lazarski” songs, for which the maidens receive gifts. The girls get dressed in bridal costumes, which are decorated by various metal and beaded jewellery, rooster feathers, natural or artificial flowers.
On April 5, 2012. from 11:00 in the Ethnographic Museum (Burgas, 69 Slavyanska St.) the results of municipal competition “Lazarski kitki” will be announced at the spring celebration accompanied by small awards and opening of an exhibition.
