The mayor of Bourgas submitted the application form of Bourgas as a candidate for European Capital of Culture in 2019.
The ceremony was held at the Ministry of Culture. It was attended by Minister Petar Stoyanovich and the mayors of the other candidate cities from Bulgaria - Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Ruse, Veliko Tarnovo, Gabrovo and Shumen.
"Art and culture - for decades they are always mentioned as a part of the business card of Bourgas. It is inspiring, picturesque, sometimes nostalgic but more often modern, active, avant-garde. The initiative "European Capital of Culture" is the highest platform through which to promote the rich cultural diversity and heritage of our region. I'm very proud to apply as a region and I thank for the support of all our friends in the 13th municipalities in Burgas district. I firmly believe that this togetherness will be evaluated and 2019 will be our year! Bourgas can, wants and deserves to be the Cultural Capital of Europe", said Dimitar Nikolov.
