Anthology on Bulgarian-Croatian relations presented

An anthology on Bulgarian-Croatian political and cultural relations through the centuries was presented in Djakovo on Friday on the occasion of the 111th anniversary of the death of Djakovo bishop and patron of the arts Josip Juraj Strossmayer, on which occasion it was said that cooperation between the Croatian and Bulgarian peoples were excellent.

The presentation was organised by the Strossmayer Memorial Museum in Djakovo, the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences Institute of Balkan Studies, which published the anthology, and the Croatian Writers' Association.

Museum head Tadija Crnjak highlighted the many links between Strossmayer and the Bulgarian people, while Svetlozar Eldarov of the Institute of Balkan Studies said Strossmayer had been an advocate of the unity of the Croatian and Bulgarian peoples. "Because of everything he did for our people, bishop Strossmayer has a permanent place in our national history," he said.
