I present to you the ethnical diversity in Varna during the years after the Freedom, as well as their lifestyle, culture and self-awareness, however I will first begin by telling you a short history about Varna. It is well-known that even during the Osman slavery the city maintained its commerce and strategic identity. At the time the Turkish and Greek were dominating the population, however the Bulgarians have maintained their spirit and traditions. Considering the fact that the population was very diverse in terms of religion and personal beliefs, they have managed to live peacefully for many years. There were conflicts, however none of them were due to ethnical reasons, but mainly political. The majority have managed to organise and carry out their lives without interfering with others. Everybody knew where their place was in the society, resulting in respecting and valuing other members in society accordingly – this been maintained till present days. The Bulgarian nation has always been tolerant towards “the others”, however has kept true to their roots and traditions. It is well known that our sea capital has hosted many music and dance competitions and festivals will continue to do so. Varna is a perfect example of how different cultures and ethical people can live, work and find joy together, and this should be appreciated and respected by all of us.
