August 10th, 2014 is glad to inform that Bulgarian Post has issued a new stamp commemorating its cultural heritage including oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals and festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe, and the skills necessary to produce traditional crafts.
