Bulgarians celebrate a large number of holidays which are categorized into public holidays, national holidays and religious holidays. The council of ministers sets the holidays at the beginning of each year. The council members provide the public with the dates that guide them on dates of holidays of the specified year. For this reason, the dates of celebration vary depending on the dates set by the council.

Holidays that occur on the weekend are celebrated on a working day under the Bulgarian laws. The government of Bulgaria provides its employees with a paid day off during any national or public holidays.

Workers and students of Bulgaria highly welcome the national holidays. Most of the workers combine their paid leave with holidays to get enough time to have vacations with their families.

The memorial complex was created to commemorate the fallen Bulgarians and Russian during the war.
