Bulgarian chitalishta (cultural community centres) are established by communities themselves and are open to everyone. The first chitalishta were set up in 1856 and they have been a key organizational unit of Bulgarian society ever since. Chitalishta perform cultural and educational activities aimed at safeguarding the customs and traditions of Bulgarian people, ensuring access to information and distributing knowledge. Their efficiency is demonstrated by their increasing numbers over the years and the growing numbers of participants in their activities.
