Does anyone know the history of this Bulgarian TOC? Their First Hierarch seems to have good relations with Met. Seraphim.

The monastery is located in Russia. The meeting between Metropolitan Seraphim (who heads the TOC-S) and Metropolitan Sergius (who wears the blue Mantiya) was meant to show solidarity between the two churches and respect for cultural differences, since the monastery is ethnically Bulgarian.

No, The TOC under Met. Seraphim is in communion with Met. Angelos, Metropolitan of Avlona in Greece.
