Bulgaria Gets Approval to Create World Tourism Museum in Sofia

information by Sofia News Agency

Bulgaria was granted the approval of the World Tourism Organisation to create a World Tourism Museum in Sofia, announced the Bulgarian Tourism Minister Nikolina Angelkova.

The forecasts of the Tourism Ministry showed that all initiatives on stimulating domestic tourism will contribute to maintaining the positive trend for the growth of the number of Bulgarians spending their holidays in the country.

Angelkova reminded of the campaign on the fifty less-known tourist sites, which was funded under the Regional Development Operational Programme.

She added that the eight cultural-historical routes spanning the territory of the whole country were ready and the design of promotional materials popularising them was forthcoming.

In her words, the main focus in the policy of the ministry this and next year would be the cultural-historical tourism as the country held a great potential in this area.

The exhibition of Thracian treasures in the Louvre attracted an additional interest to Bulgaria.

Angelkova concluded that one of the goals of the ministry was to provide more funding on advertisement and make the brand “Bulgaria” more well-known and recognisable in the world.
