Summary/Abstract: Contemporary Bulgarian constitutionalism has deep and solid foundations laid in the National Revival era. On April 16, 1879, representatives of the Bulgarian people, gathered in the old Bulgarian capital – Tarnovo, adopted the Constitution of the Bulgarian Princedom, known as the Tarnovo Constitution. It is the first Bulgarian founding act that revived Bulgaria for a new political life, paving the way to its modern European statehood. This paper is dedicated to the 140th anniversary of the adoption of the Tarnovo Constitution.
