Veliko Tarnovo will officially celebrate 135 years of the Unification of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia on September 6th.
A Euronews team visited Veliko Tarnovo in order to film a short video about the old capital. The episode “Tsarevets Fortress: The City of the Tsars” from the “Postcards” section of the multilingual news media emphasizes the historical significance of the old Bulgarian capital, which is defined as a “true national treasure” and a “popular tourist destination”.
The government decided today that the emergency epidemic situation in Bulgaria will be prolonged until the end of September. This was suggested by the Minister of Health and approved by the parliament via a videoconference. However, the Health Minister assures that no new restrictive measures against COVID-19 are envisaged for now.
