On September 22, 1908 in the church "St. Forty Martyrs" in Veliko Tarnovo, Prince Ferdinand declared with a manifesto the independence of the Principality of Bulgaria and the rejecting of the vassality of the Ottoman Empire. The proclamation of independence becomes the next step on the road to the realization of the Bulgarian national ideal. The Bulgarian state regains its international authority and the Kingdom of Bulgaria becomes an equal and desirable partner on the big political stage.
