Indeed, I posted the last pictures of giovanna in this thread few months ago.

Regarding the photo in the small carriage, the caption says "Principessa Giovanna" but the question is actually enabled.

Thank you for all your news photos stunning !

I'm not sure guys have you seen those:

From my personal collection, "Vodosvet"-the other meaning is "portals" a Christian feast celebrating it in winter and the photo is taken in 1943:



The are more pictures from Vodosvet-Водосвет but i can't find them right now...i will search tonight

One more

I'm never seen those before, very beautiful photos.

How was Boris III's relation with religion?, I read many times that he was a deeply religious person, but I'd like to know some anecdotes.

Also, sorry if I'm going off topic, but I'm curious to know something about the Vodosvet...is this an Orthodox festivity, right?...

Yes he was deep religious.... really standing on his words and reconstruct many churches...

This is festival celebrated in April or March must check but its a ritual with holy water...for health and such.... A festival of the Church...here in Bulgaria....The name comes from "water" on Bulgarian "вода" and the other word is "Holy" -Светен.... But on the old Bulgarian those two words are joined in one "Водосвет"

Forgot to say it's celebrated by the Orthodox believers...i don't know much about it because i'm Catholic believer...

Thank you for the informations!, it's very interesting...I'm Catholic too, but I like to know usages, customs, rituals and festivities of other confessions, Orthodoxy it's very fascinating.

These are indeed rare to me, I have seen only the one of Prince Boris from e-bay, but the version that I have seen was croppen and very small, I really like the one on mount Rila (I'm going to search it on the geographical map, is it far from Sofia?).
