Bulgaria came up on the European spa cart. With this the chairman of the Bulgarian union for balneology and Spa tourism - Stefan Sherlopov evaluated the meaning of the regular meeting of the board of directors of the European association which is held for a first time in Bulgaria.
Until now Bulgaria was known with other things but not with mineral water, history, culture, with spa and wellness, with health - said Sherlopov, he also added - everyone was thinking that Bulgaria has only ski and sea.
According to his words the fact that the board meet in Bulgaria gives a new vision of Bulgaria.
In the forum which will be held in the spa resort Sandanski, located in the south west Bulgaria, participate representatives of 14 countries. Most of them are visiting Bulgaria for a first time and are shocked by the level of service and opportunities that the country has to offer, they are happy to see that Bulgaria has improved a lot during the past few years. According to Sharlopov they were not expecting to see that Bulgaria has such a beautiful nature, a lot and luxurious hotels, opportunities and potential.
Six municipalities will be presented on the forum, which includes a conference on the subject "Bulgaria - four seasons, health, spa and wellness tourism" and the road for Bulgaria to the European spa markets. They are Sandanski, Velingrad, Hisarya, Devin, Kyustendil and Pomorie. Bulgaria will be represented as an all-year round balneo - and spa tourist destination.
