This year the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences will take part in the initiative "European Heritage Days - Sofia". On 17 September, within the framework of the event, a guide will show the guests around the Academy and introduce them to the history of the oldest institution in modern Bulgaria. The guided tour will be accompanied by a screening of a film about the history of BAS.

An exhibition entitled "130 years of the "Misal" magazine - a bright Bulgarian mark in the European cultural heritage"will be opened in the lobby of the building the same day. The exhibition is dedicated to one of the most important publications among Bulgarian periodicals. The "Misal" ("Thought") magazine appeared between two centuries, at times when Bulgarian intellectuals realised their belonging to European traditions and had their senses open to modernity.

At the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, the first literary circle in Bulgaria was formed around the magazine on a purely aesthetic basis - the famous Misal ("Thought") circle.

Its founders were Dr. Krastyo Krastev and poet Pencho Slaveykov. The two intellectuals bonded spiritually as early as the 1890s, a bond that would turn them into the ideologists of the circle of four men of letter united around the magazine. The much younger poet Peyo Yavorov and writer and playright Petko Todorov also joined the Circle.
