Presentation of the Eastern Rhodopes map

 

Michaela Kircheva and Hristo Hristov, coordinators on tourism and biodiversity in the "New Thracian Gold”(NTG)  project, presented the new tourist map on the Eastern Rhodopes at the international Fair Holiday SPA & Expo in Sofia (17-19 February) .

Over 60 people (guests and journalists) attended the presentation of the map.  They all received a copy of the map, materials on the project and Eastern Rhodopes and a "fresh breath" from this beautiful region – a pack of Eastern Rhodopes organic peppermint.

During the presentation of the map Michaela Kircheva pointed out some of its highlights and the ecotourism opportunities of this region. She drew a dream picture which is an ambition of the project team: an eco guest house in the Eastern Rhodopes, which offers both local and organic delicious food to tourists who enjoy the unique cultural and natural sites and experience the beautiful nature and the great biodiversity there. “In many places in the Eastern Rhodopes we can still see a great variety of endangered species of animals and birds”, said Hristo Hristov.  He also presented the project work for the reintroduction of rare breeds in the region.  Blagovesta Vassileva from the Wild farm in the village of Gorno Pole (Madzharovo municipality) told about tourism opportunities in this beautiful area which is still unknown to a great number of tourists.

Members of the team and beneficiaries gave interviews to Dnevnik daily, MSat televison and Deutsche Welle.

Finally, all guests at the presentation wished the project team a lot of success with this detailed NTG map whilst cheering a glass of Stambolovo organic wine.
