Africa Day 2023 Revealed the Charms of Seychelles to Bulgarian Citizens

Mon, 29 May 2023

Traditionally, on May 27, Sofia hosted the annual event - Africa Day 2023, which attracted hundreds of curious visitors who had the opportunity to experience the African culture. Bulgaria's Vice President Iliana Iotova and former EU Commissioner Maria Gabriel attended the event and visited all the stands of the festival.

The Honorary Consulate General of Seychelles took part again this year, welcoming visitors with exotic Seychelles tea and cinnamon, handmade jewellery, surprises from the seabed, the attractive local sea coconut - Coco de Mer, and photos of paradise beaches from the personal collection of the Honorary Consul General Maxim Behar.

The Seychelles booth was of particular interest, where the only book in Bulgaria with recipes from Seychelles (Creole) cuisine written by Maxim Behar - “The Magic of Seychelles Cuisine and Stories from the “Paradise on Earth” - was on display. Visitors expressed great interest in the book and the opportunity to get an autograph from the author in person.

As well as being united by a wonderful charitable cause, the event was an excellent opportunity to meet and learn about different cultures and nations. Visitors were able to enjoy a variety of African cuisine, music and artefacts that showcased the richness and cultural heritage of Africa.

All the organizers took part in the event - the embassies of the African countries of Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, South Africa, and the honorary consulates of Ethiopia, and Mauritius in Bulgaria.
