26 May 2022

Forthcoming on June 11 is the symbolic opening of the summer tourist season with the participation of the Diplomatic Corps.

“The Ministry of Tourism has launched an advertising campaign for Bulgaria in 25 countries in Europe and the airing of video clips on national and leading TV channels is already underway.” This was stated by the Minister of Tourism Hristo Prodanov before journalists in the National Assembly.

The symbolic opening of the summer tourist season is forthcoming on June 11 and 12. At the invitation of the Minister of Foreign Affairs Teodora Genchovska and the Minister of Tourism Hristo Prodanov, heads of diplomatic missions accredited in the Republic of Bulgaria will visit the Black Sea coast on a study visit to get acquainted with the tourist potential, announced Minister Prodanov. “The aim is to convince all ambassadors that Bulgaria is a safe and peaceful destination and to invite their compatriots on vacation,” the minister said.

He commented on the upcoming summer tourist season in Bulgaria and said he was moderately optimistic. “The war has a negative impact in two aspects. The direct aspect is that a large part of those who are further away from Bulgaria believe that the Black Sea is tempestuous, which is not the case. The Black Sea is a calm and safe zone and I try in every way to say what the truth is and to urge our guests from abroad not to worry and to visit the Bulgarian Black Sea coast,” added Minister Prodanov.

At the National Assembly Minister Prodanov participated in the opening of the photo exhibition “65 years of resort “Golden Sands”, which is part of the initiatives organized by the “Union of Hotel-keepers in the resort “Golden Sands”. “For 65 years now, resort “Golden Sands” is developing to remain a modern destination. The resort’s unique combination of sea, beach and forest is attractive to people from all over the world. I hope that more and more tourists will visit the resort and have good memories of this beautiful place,” Minister Prodanov said.  Guests of the event were Atanas Dimitrov - Deputy Chairperson of the Management Board of the Bulgarian Hotel and Restaurant Association and the Honorary President of the association, Blagoy Ragin.

The photo exhibition is being presented in the building of the National Assembly from May 26 to June 6, and then it will be exhibited at Sofia Airport.
