On 12 July 2022, the Counsellor at the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria to the Republic of Croatia and Deputy Head of the Embassy’s Mission Mr Stoyan Todorov Stankuloff and the Embassy’s secretary Ms Petja Stoimenova Mršić visited the National and University Library in Zagreb (NSK).

During the visit Counsellor Todorov Stankuloff and Ms Stoimenova Mršić met with the Library’s Director General Dr Ivanka Stričević. Also present at the meeting were the National Library Affairs Assistant to the NSK Director General Dr Sofija Klarin Zadravec and Senior Public Relations Adviser at the NSK Marketing and Communications Section Nela Marasović.

The meeting participants discussed the continuation of cooperation between the Library and the representatives of Bulgaria on the organisation of exhibitions, professional development exchange programmes and joint projects focusing on the preservation of cultural heritage, heritage digitisation and the promotion of the two countries’ shared heritage – the Glagolitic alphabet.

The Library’s previous successful cooperation with the 2012-2018 Ambassador Plenipotentiary and Extraordinary of the Republic of Bulgaria to the Republic of Croatia Tanya Dimitrova resulted in Sacred Tongue of My Predecessors: Croatian-Bulgarian Parallels, a 2015 touring exhibition and its virtual counterpart, and is expected to continue as successfully with the current Bulgaria’s ambassador Her Excellency Mrs Genka Vasileva Georgieva.
