Bulgaria (1950-1964)

 

Once Communist rule was secured in Bulgaria, “Balgariyo mila” was introduced as the national anthem. Interestingly, the anthem was replaced in 1964 while the Communists were still in power. One of the composers of the music, Georgi Dimitrov (not to be confused with the Communist leader of the time with the same name) also wrote the previous anthem.

Special thanks to: Pavel Zinovatny for the music file and to Martin Petrov for the Romanizationn.
