Bulgarian Orthodox Information about Saint Nicholas
Part of the Saint Nicholas Page honoring Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker
Bulgaria was the first Slavic nation to accept Christianity. The Bulgarian Orthodox Church (see also Bulgarian Orthodox Church, really in Bulgarian,) like the Greek Orthodox Church and other national Orthodox Churches in the Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean, fell under the hand of the Islamic Ottoman Empire, where it remained for about 500 years. Additional Bulgarian sites may be found in the Saint Nicholas pages about the Orthodox Church in America, Bulgarian Diocese.
