I am a Bulgarian

The poem was written in 1919, after a period of national catastrophes had submerged the nation in mourning. Ivan Vazov decided to take matters in his own hands and bring back the people's high moral. He made his goal clear (to encourage his people, to inspire them with self-confidence and faith )

The poem became so popular, that now it is a mandatory subject, that every child in year 4 needs to know by heart.
