Bulgaria in first hand: Marie Eichhorn in Sofia 19241925
България от първо лице. Мари Айхорн в София 1924—1925 г.
Language: Bulgarian


   Bavarian Marie Eichhorn set out for Sofia by train from Munich on 2 January and spent the next four and a half days passing through Vienna, Budapest and Belgrade. She was on her way to the Vazov family to teach music and foreign languages to their three daughters. The Vazovs were part of Sofia's establishment at the time. The mother, Elisaveta Konsulova-Vazova, was one of the first female artists in Bulgaria. Her husband, Boris Vazov, was a lawyer and deputy speaker of parliament. He was also the brother of Ivan Vazov, Bulgaria's People's Poet.

   The book presents the diary of Marie Eichhorn, which is a document about the time when the foundations of a number of cultural institutions were laid in Bulgaria, many of which we owe to Konsulova-Vazova and her entourage. The diary contains information about political and social events, as well as about personalities who played an important role in the cultural life of Sofia society. The everyday life of the new, still few educated bourgeois elite is described  family relations, holiday rituals, vacations, entertainment, manners, which are formed in the new conditions of contact with the outside, "European" world.
