Issues we want to address with The Vegan Festival
The program for the 14th International Vegan Festival will address the issues relating to global nutrition and health, including the ethical, environmental, educational and scientific aspects towards veganism to indicate a more healthy and compassionate vegan food ethic and lifestyle that takes into account the needs and interests of others. The benefits of rational food habits will also be highlighted as well as the dangers of the present food model, which is ethically, ecologically and socially unsustainable.
Festival excursion to Balchik
During the 14th International Vegan Festival there will be a sight-seeing trip to the famous Balchik Palace/Botanical garden in Balchik, which is one of the main attractions on the North Coast and is included in the 100 Tourist Sites of Bulgaria, and it is included in the price of the Festival. The Balchik Palace was constructed between 1926 and 1937, during the Romanian control of the region, for the needs of Queen Marie of Romania. The palace complex consists of a number of residential villas, a smoking hall, a wine cellar, a power station, a monastery, a holy spring, a chapel and many other buildings, as well as most notably a park that is today a state-run botanical garden.
