The good experience with the 1994 IMC in Bulgaria favored another IMC in this country (hosted in an universitary hotel). The excursion brought the participants to Varna Observatory and the Aladzi monastery (placed in a protected natural park). The Saturday evening Astroshow included contributions from eight countries. This was a most enjoyable IMC at the Black Sea with an all-night-long beach party (with much Bulgarian guitar music) where the IMC song was born (as a French initiative).
