Five Star 8th of December – Second Announcement

November 13, 2017By Бойко МатевCultur activity, Upcoming events No Comments

Dear colleagues,

From the 13.11.17 /Monday/ until the 24.11.17 (Friday) including, from 10:00h to 17:00h at the Students’ Council office (room 213 of the Rectorate building), the second part of the sum for the 8th of December reservation (60 BGN) can be deposited. If there are any colleagues, who wish to be part of the event, but have for whatever reason missed the initial payment, they can reserve a place by paying the entire sum instead (130 BGN).

The frosty winter air reminds us of the rapidly approaching end of the semester and the wonderful event, which accompanies it, namely the Five star 8th of December. Despite the truly unique programme you will get to enjoy on the evening of the holiday, no true event of such scale could be complete without a proper full-course meal! We deem it only fair to share with you the menu that awaits our colleagues at the “International” hotel. A team of master chefs has been charged with the challenging task to comply with even the most pretentious of tastes among us. With unwavering dedication and attention to details, they offer you:


Bringing alcoholic beverages to the event is forbidden, however, exclusively for us, the students of Medical University – Varna, the venue offers preferential rates for them.

Take note, that should you wish for a vegetarian menu, it must be stated during the payment of the second part of the reservation. Preferences about where and with whom to be seated with must also be mentioned at that time. The Students’ Council will do its very best to comply with the wishes of every single guest about seating, however, it reserves the right to make changes.

The Eight of December, unique in its origin as a holiday on an international scale, is traditionally thought of by Bulgarian students as a time to meet people with whom they share common interests both personally and professionally. The Medical University of Varna is one of the higher education institutions in the country with the largest number of specialties and faculties in other cities. Let us spend an unforgettable holiday together, truly different from the one, experienced by other Bulgarian students!
