Dear ladies and gentlemen,
Welcome to the official website of the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in the Republic of Turkey.
Here you can find useful information about various aspects of the Bulgarian-Turkish relations, you will be able to track the current calendar of events conducted by the Embassy, and you can also ask questions and send recommendations.
An important part of the information concerns the consular and visa services.
The ambition of our team is to contribute to the new of the bilateral relations between Bulgaria and Turkey, dynamics based primarily on geopolitical, not only on the historical approach.
The strategic location of Turkey between four of the most neuralgic areas in the world - the Balkans, the Caucasus, Central Asia and the Middle East, its membership in NATO, its aspirations for EU membership, make it an important and promising partner in the fields of transport, energy and economic relations.
Turkey is among the leading trade and economic partners of Bulgaria. Its aspirations to be a direct supplier of energy resources from the Caspian region and the Middle East to Europe establishes it as an important transit country, which through diversification of supply routes will help to contribute for the energy security of Bulgaria and Europe. The thorough analysis of the geopolitical transformations in the region, the balanced and free of ideologemes diplomacy would give Bulgaria the opportunity to position its national interests in the best possible way.
The Embassy will work for the promotion of the Bulgarian culture and art. Our ambition is to build a Cultural board of distinguished artists from both countries who will help in the cultural exchange. We will assist in presenting works by contemporary Bulgarian artists to the Turkish audience, we will organize readings of books, staging of plays, traveling exhibitions.
We will pay attention to education and science. We will maintain contacts with the Bulgarian Philology Department of the Ankara State University.
Together with the associations of the emigrants from Bulgaria we will organize Sunday courses for those families who want their children to be taught Bulgarian; we will create libraries of Bulgarian literature.
As Bulgarian Ambassador to the Republic of Turkey I will work for modern, friendly and mutually beneficial relations in which the interests of Bulgaria are not only protected, but also developed to a higher European level.
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary
of the Republic of Bulgaria to the Republic of Turkey
