On December 5, the International Volunteer Day, FTTUB and the “European future” foundation paid tribute to volunteerism by awarding honorary diplomas and certificates to their volunteers who actively participated in the activities and the events of the two organisations. The ceremony was held on the beautiful site of Sofia History Museum. Nadezhda Staneva was leading the event.
FTTUB President Ekaterina Yordanova welcomed the participants with the words: “You are probably wondering how come unions, which preach that each work should be rewarded fairly, develop volunteering. Union membership and trade union activity in their own way are volunteerism. They mean personal time and effort sacrificed in the name of common good and excellence for all.

On the kind invitation of the “Tourism” municipal enterprise they took part in the event organized by the Bulgarian Tour Operators and Travel Agencies Association. It took place at the Military History Museum, one of the most emblematic Sofia landmarks.
In her capacity of city councilor, Ekaterina Yordanova greeted the audience on behalf of the Municipal Council of Sofia wishing them all prosperity and better lives.
“Tourism is one of the sectors on which Bulgaria and Sofia need to focus their attention, while developing it with care for the preservation and representation of Bulgarian authenticity. We have so much to share with the world: our cultural and historical heritage, our natural beauties, our traditions. And it is exactly through tourism that we can bring Bulgaria closer to the hearts and minds of people worldwide. We have seen it happen during the 43rd congress of the International Transport Federation (ITF) in Sofia, when we shared the best of Bulgaria with almost 2000 delegates from all corners of the world, and they carry it in their hearts ever since.” – commented Ekaterina Yordanova.
FTTUB sends greetings to our partners in tourism and our newest members at ‘Travel Time Bulgaria’, with our best wishes for successful days.
Today, we celebrate the 107th anniversary of the official proclamation of Bulgaria’s independence. Let us live in dignity as Bulgarian and European citizens.
