It was introduced to the public on 8 September, the same year by Exarch Joseph.

With the conquest of the Balkans all the Bulgarian lands went under the authority of the Ottomans. Before that Bulgaria had always been in constant relations with Eastern Thrace. But after its lands became part of the Ottoman Empire a bigger Bulgarian colony was formed in the capital of the Empire, Istanbul (or as it was famous among Bulgarians – Tsarigrad). The colony consisted of mostly craftsmen and merchants. Istanbul was also the centre of journalism and enlightenment for the Bulgarians.
