Abstract: The current article explores the cultural activities of the Bulgarian academic organization “Bulgarian Working-bee” in Prague and its relationship with the Bulgarian embassy during the diplomatic mandate of the plenipotentiary minister Boris Vazov (1927 – 1932). In this paper we assess these relations from two different perspectives – from the perspective of their mutual cooperation and from the perspective of the bitter conflicts between the two institutions that resulted in an open split with the academic organization.

Key words: Bulgarian students in Prague, Bulgarian legation, Bulgarian diplomats, cultural events, Boris Vazov
