All ambassadors will come to the European Capital of Culture on Wednesday at the Basilica, he said, adding that they will also visit the Manole Tower as it is unique for Europe. Borissov expressed hope that Bulgaria will finally start making money from this sector, similar to Greece and Italy, and he said he would use his contacts with the America for Bulgaria Foundation to promote this country and its archaeology and to let more people know about it.
According to the prime minister, the maintenance of the Grand Basilica in Plovdiv will cost about BGN 300,000 annually and 20 people staff. "We hope that later it will be able to support itself by selling tickets," Borissov added.
