About the Olympics

• In Antiquity, the Olympic Games were celebrated as a religious festival from 776 B.C. until 393 A.D., when Theodosius I banned them because they were associated with paganism (the games celebrated the Greek god Zeus). The first modern Olympic Games (summer) were held in 1896 (again in Greece) after the French educator Baron Pierre de Coubertin proposed the revival of the ancient tradition. The first winter Olympic Games were held in 1924 in Chamonix, France.

Two unforgettable days at the pearl of Pirin

At the end of last week the team of Arte.doc spent two wonderful, sunny and joyful days at the pearl of Pirin Mountain — the town of Bansko. The latest teambuilding event was carried out there, this time entitled "Relax", organised by the management of the agency and its Advertising Department.

The visit to the St. Theodor Tiron and Theodor Stratilat Church in the village of Dobarsko, which is a national monument of culture, left us rich with unforgettable memories. Our employees' stay at the town of Bansko was accompanied by fun games aimed at boosting team spirit and logical thought. Lots of entertainment, prizes and fun surprises contributed to the participants' high spirits.

In the evening distinguished employees were awarded deeds for their achievements in the implementation of their duties. And the best dancer shared their prize — a small sack of apples — with all co-workers.

September 26 – The European Day of Languages

Since 2001, September 26 is dedicated to the celebration of European languages.

In order to increase citizens' awareness of multilingualism in Europe, to develop the cultural and linguistic diversity and to promote language learning in and out of school, in 2001 the European Union and the Council of Europe decide to start and announce the initiative called European Year of Languages.

Europe has a real language treasure: 24 official languages and more than 60 local communities who speak a regional or minority language, and also the languages spoken by people of non-European origin and coming from other continents.

Happy 1st of March!

On this day we celebrate the coming of spring after the long winter. We give each other martenitsas to be pinned on clothes or tied on wrists as a charm for good health and happiness. This is an ancient Balkan tradition which goes back to the times when khans adorned their warriors with threads of red and white colour in order to give them strength and good health. This beautiful gift brings a smile, a feeling of joy and rejuvenates the wearer.

We wish you good health, happiness and abundant success!

3 MARCH — DAY OF PRIDE AND COMMEMORATION

On this day (19 February according to the Julian calendar) Bulgaria and Bulgarians in various parts of the world celebrate their national holiday — the liberation from the Ottoman rule. Bulgaria, one of the oldest states in Europe, a country that during the centuries contributed the most to the cultural and political development of the Slavic people in Southeastern Europe and the cradle of the two Slavic alphabets, disappeared from the historical map in 1396 when it was conquered by the Ottoman Turks .

For nearly 5 centuries the Bulgarian people lived in isolation and oppression. Nevertheless, it survived and succeeded in conserving its spiritual and cultural achievements from the past through the centuries. What's more – it successfully developed them further, created new ones and conserved its national consciousness among the other peoples within the boundaries of the Ottoman Empire.
