With several initiatives, the Regional History Museum in Veliko Tarnovo is commemorating 151 years since the death of the Apostle. "Levski in our hearts" is the theme of the educational initiative "Museum in a Suitcase", which visited schools and kindergartens in the region on the eve of the anniversary.

The lessons present interesting facts from the life and revolutionary activity of Vasil Levski, as well as his belongings stored in the museum. Among the exhibits are the "Orara va Levski" - a long cloth ribbon with which Levski called on the faithful to prayer, a photo with a handwritten signature, a copy of his pistol, two seals of the Bulgarian Revolutionary Central Committee, made for the organization on his order.
