Svetoslav Glosov, Eng. Stefan Chaikov, Chairman of the MB of Bulgarian Branch Chamber Roads, and others.
“We are developing a number of balneo and spa routes on the territory of Bulgaria, which will be able to combine and build on the already established eight cultural and historical destinations,” added Minister Angelkova.
“I hope that Devin will join our initiative because we are going to add all these places to the Register of tourist attractions of the country,” she said. According to her, the aqua park will undoubtedly contribute significantly to the development of Devin as an interesting and preferred tourist destination.
