New Shopping Centre Veliko Tarnovo will be opened in the Poltava Complex

The new shopping centre Veliko Tarnovo will include a 3-story complex with an underground parking and a big cinema.

The owner of the cultural complex “Poltava” Velichko Minev is currently clearing some of the dangerous elements of the facade, where the cinema had been up until years ago, waiting to get the proper construction permit to completely rebuild Poltava. According to Minev the work that needs to be done will take around a year or so. He has plans to build an underground parking on 3 or even 4 levels if the terrain allows. As anyone living in Tarnovo knows parking in this town is extremely hard so a new parking will definitely come in handy.
