A bright future awaits Perperikon and Tatul
On a press conference yesterday prof. Nikolay Ovcharov presented data for the accomplishments and future works on the archaeological sites Perperikon and Tatul near Kardzhali.
“Up to now, 220 000 leva were invested in the conservation of the sites, and nothing is destroyed”, said the archaeologist. He gave photographic proof on the accomplishments so far.
Prof. Ovcharov informed, that a new project between Bulgaria and Greece worth 2,6 million leva began, and added that in March the Bulgarian president Georgi Parvanov will turn the first sod of the ambitious project near the ancient places.
If the project succeeds, by 2010 Bulgaria will have one of the most well-made monuments of ancient culture. A museum and tourist center will also be constructed.
