The first stage of the voyage of the Bulgarian naval research vessel Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii (RSV 421), from Varna to Cartagena, Spain, has been completed successfully, the Nikola Vaptsarov Naval Academy said on Facebook.

On Saturday at 1 pm RSV 421 docked at the terminal of the port of Cartagena, Spain, after sailing from Varna on November 8. 

The voyage lasted 10 days with a refuelling south of Istanbul.

Four of the fourth-year cadets of the Naval Academy are part of the ship's crew of 34 servicemen. For them this is a long-term practice, which will consolidate the acquired knowledge and skills and improve them.

Also on board were 28 Naval Academy cadets who successfully completed their short-term assignment, which was to the city of Cartagena.

The vessel left Varna on November 8 and is expected to return to Bulgaria in April 2024.

During the 32nd Bulgarian expedition to Antarctica, which started on November 8, 2023, the Bulgarian News Agency (BTA) is publishing interviews with Antarctic researchers. The Bulgaria-Antarctica BTA's Log again provides coverage of the voyage of the Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii to Antarctica and back and its stay there, as it did during the 31st expedition between December 27, 2022 and May 2, 2023. Back then, only BTA had a correspondent, Daily News Editor Konstantin Karagyozov, who covered the 127-day expedition with text, video and photos during the entire voyage (including across the Atlantic in both directions) and throughout the stay in Antarctica. In June 2023, BTA published in Bulgarian and in English an issue of its LIK magazine "To Antarctica and Back under the Bulgarian Flag" dedicated to the historic expedition.

Again, all of BTA's information on the Bulgarian scientific research in Antarctica and the support provided by the Bulgarian naval research vessel, as well as on the other activities at the Bulgarian Antarctic Base, will be available to all media outlets in Bulgarian and in English on BTA's website in the Bulgaria - Antarctica: BTA's Log section.

BTA has a National Press Club on board the ship and is planning to open a National Press Club at the Bulgarian Antarctic Base on Livingston Island.
