At present, Bulgaria is in a new stage of its culture and spiritual progress. Conditions for researching our common heritage and for new preservation methods development are more favorable now that Bulgaria joined the European Union.

Unfortunately, hundreds of bells and traditions of their creation, their unique chime, related to joy and sorrow, war and peace, national and religious feasts and ceremonies, culture and fate of Bulgarian generations, have been lost during last decades.

Saving our heritage is our duty and it requires complicated scientific work.

The aim of this project is to study and identify several dozens of the most valuable bells in our churches and monasteries, as well as to develop an audio archive (using advanced technologies) for analysis, reservation and audio data protection.
