"We are developing very good relations with Bulgaria," Braila Mayor Viorel Marian Dragomir told the members of the Bulgarian delegation celebrating the 155th anniversary of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) in the courtyard of the Church of the Ascension of Christ here on Tuesday.

"Here we want to talk about what the Bulgarians who lived here have done for Braila. Some of them came here for trade. Then they got involved in the life of the city. They built beautiful, nice houses, churches. There were also Bulgarians who came to Braila to find peace and shelter, to go from here into the great Bulgarian revolution. We were good hosts for them. They integrated very well into our society. They were all like brothers. We are twinned with the cities of Pleven (North Bulgaria) and Shumen (Northeast Bulgaria). We develop very good relations, we visit each other several times a year," the Mayor of Braila further noted.

Viorel Marian Dragomir noted that the Braila theatre has recently participated in several cultural events in Shumen.

"We have great respect for our ancestors. Even today we have very good relations with the Bulgarian Society of Braila. All guests from Bulgaria who come to visit our town are well received here," he stressed.

"As your ancestors felt, you should always feel at home in Braila," the Mayor told the members of the Bulgarian delegation.

The commemoration was attended by BTA Director General Kiril Valchev, BTA Deputy Director General Evgenia Drumeva, Bulgarian National Radio Director General Milen Mitev, head of the Council for Electronic Media Gabriela Naplatanova, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences President Acad. Julian Revalski, Rector of Sofia University Prof. Georgi Valchev, as well as representatives of Bulgarian media and Bulgarian-language media from different countries around the world.

Earlier in the day, the Bulgarian delegation honoured the work of Bulgarian revolutionary Hristo Botev in Braila.
