Join us for the 30th AUBG Anniversary in Blagoevgrad!

One Unique MEGA Event for the entire AUBG family!

First 30 years are gone, there are many more to come!

30 years ago, AUBG opened its doors and became the place that would be the one to meet friends, party wild, sometimes study, drink like crazy, have fun and build memories for 25 (and counting) classes to come until this year we can celebrate the BIG 30!

It is going to be huge…, no, scratch that, it is going to be MASSIVE! All classes coming back to AUBG! There will be a rich and exclusive program for all AUBG Alumni: Alumni Challenge, Theatre Performance, Fancy Cocktail and wild Underground parties, Outdoor activities and more! All these packed into only three days: October 1st to 3rd, 2021.

BurgaskoLogo-CMYK

Proud beer provider

Burgasko is a light Bulgarian beer with 4,4% ABV originally made in the seaside city of Burgas (Bulgarian: Бургаско пиво). It was established back in 1971 and for many years it was a regional brand, sold only at the south Bulgarian coast-line. From 2015 the brand is available nationally. For many people the brand has become a symbol of the carefree summer moments at the sea.

MEGA Advisor

Anguel Anguelov - Mostuna graduated a long time ago, but never really stopped being present in the AUBG ambience. His character is considered obnoxious, although mostly cool. Flamboyant by actions, “slender” in shape, and soulful by music, Mostun is always ready to crash a party, a wedding, AUBG board meeting, or a show. He was also the lead organizer of the first two Mega Reunions in 2005 and in 2015.

If you need to book a hotel, here are some options:
