Students Day 8th of December 2016 is a holiday of all Bulgarian students.
It was originally celebrated in 1903 as a holiday at the first Bulgarian university.
The Students Day celebration was canceled after 1944 and replaced with the International Day of Student Nov.
In 1962 Bulgarian Students Day was restored on the 8th of December .
On the 28th of October 1994, the council of rectors, decided that the 8th of December should be free of lectures for all Bulgarian students.
Because of that, today Bansko is overflowing with young people, who are here to have fun on their holiday event. All hotels and restaurants have been reserved for months for that special date.
