Partners and collaborators

The association and the school are in contact with other educational, scientific and cultural institutions, international organizations in Alsace: with cultural centers, local associations, as well as with Bulgarian schools and associations in France, Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg. The Strasbourg municipality’s support for Education and the Rotterdam Social and Cultural Center in Strasbourg is particularly important. The school receives the support of the Municipality for the hiring of training rooms, for the realization of a number of cultural initiatives. We also have regular and constructive contacts with the Bulgarian Church Community in Strasbourg in organizing celebrations to preserve Bulgarian spirituality and traditions. We should also note the long-standing cooperation with the Department of Slavistics at Strasbourg University.
