Summary/Abstract: The formation of the Bulgarian intellectual elite in the nineteenth century can be examined through the prism of macro-history, but it can be seen in more detail and more specifically through the fate of individual prominent artists, through the prism of the microhistory. Based on the available documentary material and the existing historiographic achievements, the article tracks the formation and growth of two of the leading Bulgarian intellectuals in the nineteenth century, as is undoubtedly Marin Drinov and Nesho Bonchev. Special attention is paid to the conditions, factors and individuals who influence them during their school years in Panagyurishte, their teachings at the seminary in Kiev and their student years at the Moscow University.
