On November 23, the Orthodox Church commemorates the memory of St. Blessed Prince Alexander Nevsky
St. Patriarch's Cathedral Alexander Nevsky "celebrated its temple holiday and 95 years since the dedication of the cathedral. It is the largest Eastern Orthodox cathedral on the Balkan Peninsula. The foundation stone was laid on February 19, 1882. The cathedral was consecrated much later - in 1924 - for three consecutive days, as there are three thrones in the temple.
After the solemn liturgy at St. Alexander Nevski, Patriarch Neophyte and members of the Board of Trustees of the Bulgarian Patriarchate were invited to a solemn lunch at the ANEL Hotel in Sofia, and the owner of the hotel, the poet and collector Angel Simeonov, met them in person.
