Prosveta Publishing Group

Eight decades of history and looking forward to the future

‘Prosveta’ is the leading Bulgarian publishing group for textbooks, teaching aids and scholarly books. It was established on February 15, 1945 by Decree № 41 of the regents of Bulgaria as a state publishing house for textbooks and teaching aids. In 2000, it was transformed into a joint-stock company. Today, the group consists of Prosveta-Sofia AD, Prosveta Bulgaria AD, Prosveta Libri OOD, Prosveta Plus OOD and Prosveta Azbuki OOD.

Over a span of nearly 80 years, more than 18,000 titles with a print run of nearly two billion copies in total have been published under the ‘Prosveta’ brand. The publishing group collaborates with over 50,000 authors and artists, prominent figures in Bulgarian science, art, and education. To date, the group employs a total of more than 150 people, with its headquarters in Sofia and regional offices in all major cities.

It was Prosveta that created the first e-books for the Bulgarian market back in 2010-2011. In 2021, the digital learning platform e-prosveta won the BELMA (Best European Learning Materials Awards) award for best digital learning platform in Europe at the Frankfurt Book Fair. A number of widely used titles by Prosveta such as the primer and the first-grade textbook set ‘The Great Adventure’, the ‘Hello! New Edition’ English series, among others, have also received awards for best learning materials in Europe.
