The Bulgarian Geological Society was established on fourth February 1925 by a little gathering of aficionados — six geologists from the University of Sofia, one hydrogeologist, one excavator, three Natural Science teachers, eleven mining specialists and one zoologist.
The thought to establish the Bulgarian geographical Society was advanced by Georgi Bonchev, Stephan Bonchev and Peter Bakalov – educators of geography at the University of Sofia. In the welcome letter for a preparatory meeting to examine the thought, they composed: "Our nation, however little in size, stows away in the subsurface privileged insights that interest both scholars and practices … These mysteries ought to be unridled, considered and aced keeping in mind the end goal to be placed being used. To do this, in any case, the scattered endeavors of people, however various and enthusiastic, are not adequate.. Joint endeavors, shared help, talks, incitement are required… The time has come when every one of us, who are keen on the topographical issues from any perspective and in the most stretched out feeling of the word, must participate in one group and begin cooperating."
This welcome, marked on twelfth February 1924, is a speak to the geographical group in Bulgaria that even today has a far-located and significant importance.
The constituent meeting occurred one year later, on fourth February 1925, and this was the establishment date of the Bulgarian Geological Society. The meeting examined and endorsed the Statute of the Society and chose President - Prof. Georgi Bonchev, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and individuals from the Controlling Board.
