Bulgaria takes 3rd place in the world on number of culture monuments. The problem is Bulgarians still hasn't learned how to present the rich culture heritage attractively enough to Bulgarians and foreigners Krushkova commented.

Everywhere worldwide the culture tourism has been financed by the municipalities, that should encourage the sector, specialists commented for Vsekiden online media.
