Veliko Tarnovo Municipality is to build a Wall of Love, which can become a real attraction and increase the number of tourist sites in the town. People in love will incorporate their love into it rather than locking padlocks to state their feelings. As you know people worldwide ‘lock’ their love with padlocks and put them on bridges, including Stambolov’s Bridge in Veliko Tarnovo. The project is already deposited with the authorities for approval. The wall will probably be located at Boruna Park, near Asenevtsi Monument, and will even bring good income to the local treasury. It will be built from stone and bricks and will also provide a stage/balcony where lovers can take photos. Anyone who loves someone may write their name on a brick and lay it in the wall. It is expected that one brick will cost around 3 leva.

The Ministry of Transport, Information Technology and Communications has secured additional 2.05 million leva for the airports in Plovdiv and Gorna Oryahovitsa. These funds will be used to pay off the debts which the state has accumulated towards both airports for the funding of activities such as ensuring the safety and security of flights and for the maintenance and development of the airports.
Meanwhile Gorna Oryahovitsa airport is awaiting its new owner. According to experts there is a bonus the concessioner is to receive – an on-ramp from the airport to the future Hemus Highway that is to pass nearby. Only the opinion of the Commission for Protection of Competition is awaited before the new owner takes possession of the airport.
