The Bulgarian naval research vessel Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii (RSV 421) left the Greek port of Piraeus at 7.30 pm on April 28 for the Bulgarian Blacк Sea port of Varna where it ends its participation in the 31st Bulgarian Antarctic expedition to Livingston Island.
Before leaving, the crew lined up for a family photo on the pier at the passenger terminal. The photo also features the cadets from the Nikola Vaptsarov Naval Academy (NVNA) of Varna, who are conducting sailing practice aboard RSV 421, and the four lecturers leading them.
