NTG did not Participate in Uzana Fest - 2013 due to Theft

An impudent theft precluded New Thracian Gold from participating in Uzana Polyana Fest - 2013 (12-14 July 2013). All organic products of NTG network, information and promotion materials on the Eastern Rhodopes, maps and guidebooks to the regions NTG intended to present at the three-day festival have been stolen last night from the project stand.

 NTG team is deeply disappointed. This has been planned to be NTG first participation in the Festival with its own stand. The organizers made a commitment for guarding the location, but they failed to organize it. It is their and not project's fault, but on behalf of New Thracian Gold apologizes to all who have planned to visit our stand and get introduced to the Eastern Rhodopes.

 The guests of the Festival would not have the opportunity to taste products of organic farmers and owners of guest houses from the Eastern Rhodopes: homemade sheep cheese and butter, homemade bread and cakes, several types of wine from organic grapes, tahini, honey, bathed pastry, maslenitsa (butter cake),sesami cookies, etc. NTG had plans to present at its stand information and promotion materials on adventure, rural and ecotourism in the Rhodopes and to offer the NTG tourist map and guidebook to the Eastern Rhodopes issued in 2011 and 2012, as well as Crossbill guidebook (in English) to the Bulgarian and Greek parts of the mountain released in last April.


The map and the guidebooks you can buy from the online shop on NTG website:
