On July 27, the Bulgarian Orthodox Church celebrates the day of the healer St. Panteleimon and the deeds of the Seven Saints, the equal-to-the-apostles St. Cyril and St. Methodius and their disciples Clement, Nahum, Sava, Gorazd and Angelarius. Traditionally, the church honours each of the seven saints on a special day, but because of the Assumption of St. Kliment Ohridski, the day of July 27 is also a common holiday of the Slavic first teachers.

Due to the wanderings of St. Panteleimon, called the Traveler, July 27 is considered a good day to start a journey. 
On this day people bearing the names Dobrin, Panteley, Dobri, Dobrina celebrate their name's day.
