Homage to José Martí in the Embassy of Cuba in Bulgaria

In homage to the 165th anniversary of the birth of José Marti, the Cuban Embassy held a Memorial activity to the national hero in collaboration with the Friendship Association Bulgaria - Cuba and the Association of Cubans Residents in Bulgaria.

Ambassador Pedro Pablo San Jorge recalled that Marti was a Cuban of universal projection that exceeded the borders of the time he lived to become the bigest Hispanic political thinker of the 19th century.

During the tribute, Bulgarian students recited verses of Martí in Bulgarian and Spanish language and  the President of the Union of Bulgarian writers Boyan Angelov dedicated  emotional words to the Apostol.

Participants to the tribute deposited flowers on the monument to José Martí in the park located a few meters from the Cuban Embassy in Sofia, Bulgaria
