At a ceremony in the coat-of-arms hall at 2 Dondukov street, President Rumen Radev awarded the famous Polish artist and public figure Jan Englert the honorary plaquette St. St. Cyril and Methodius as a sign of recognition for his considerable contribution to contemporary art and popularizing Bulgarian culture.

The Head of State highlighted Jan Englert’s great role as an artist, head of prestigious cultural institutions, lecturer, pedagogue and producer, who played unforgettable roles in a lot of films and on the theatrical scene.  

“I share your philosophy that the global world is making us more and more willing to seek our roots. Seek not an easy, but valuable communication and defend freedom as a value that is based on clear ethical criteria that draw the line between honesty and immorality,” Rumen Radev emphasized. The President highlighted Jan Englert’s emblematic presence in the unforgettable Bulgarian film Doomed Souls and thanked him for becoming an ambassador of Bulgarian culture. “I wish you success in your intellectual march towards achieving a depth of emotions, towards the renaissance of ethics and restoring humanism,” the Head of State further said.

“During the tens of years that passed since I performed the role of father Eredia, in a really strange way I did not part with Bulgarian culture, neither did Bulgarian culture part with me. I keep a track of everything that happens in it. As far as I can, I continue to maintain my contacts, as director of the National Theater I invite Bulgarian theatrical companies to festivals in Warsaw and not because I was father Eredia but because I met wonderful people and artists and was welcomed with warm and honest feelings in Bulgaria, which is something extremely rare, especially today,” Jan Englert said.
