Hello dear compatriots We are in Historic Park. This is the biggest and most massive project that has been built over the last 30 years in Bulgaria in the field of cultural and historical heritage near the village of Neofit Rilski, Vetrino Municipality, Varna district. Vetrino Municipality is one of the most slowest in growth and least developed municipalities in Bulgaria. not just on the territory of a municipality but on the territory of a whole country. That is why this project, which is happening here, writes the story of Bulgarian entrepreneurship, not just on the territory of a municipality, but on the territory of a whole country. Because it shows how alone and solely by personal means, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit can be made that a very underdevelopped municipality can literally be revived. This also shows how our whole country can be revived, which country in the past 30 years has been led solely and directly to the path of the abyss and decadence and destruction. Or rather, self-destruction. However, over the past few months, against this huge investment project – the Historical Park – has sparked an unprecedented coordinated media attack from media outlets connected and funded by the “America for Bulgaria” Foundation. and the famous oligarch Ivo Prokopiev. They explain that this is an imitation project, first explaining that it is an imitation project that would never happen, that there would be no Grand Opening. Secondly, it was explained that even if it was opened, it would be some complete imitation, performed in the style of the Kra Kra, Pernishki, and the like, with styrofoam, with Ytong bricks and other nonsense. Then, when it turned out that this was not the case, it was said that it was a financial pyramid that dragged down its depositors. And now, at the moment when they saw that it did not work, because you can notice – there is not one person from the investors, and they are thousands, who have expressed in some way dissatisfaction, even a bit about their investment. When they saw that this did not work, they pulled out, so to say, the final guns from the arsenal. And they began to appeal to the Prosecutor’s Office. Delations, it is important to say, their tools, because these are their levers for governing and repression. They call them signals, but they are actually delations. Now, the reason for being here is not because I am a capital investor in the project, I haven’t got the money, otherwise I would be happy to participate but because I know Ivelin Mihaylov who is here next to me and who is actually the ideologist and creator and so to speak the soul of the whole this endeavor. The reason I’m here is that I can not sit and watch indifferently how some dirty people, literally dirty, are trying to destroy and spoil an undertaking that is – and notice – without any state resources, without any European money. Something that is really unique for the first time, there is no work-management privatization here. There are no investors outside, no EU funds. This is the solely a Bulgarian project. When I first heard more than four years ago about the project, I was still the director of the Regional History Museum in Dobrich. Back then Ivelin had given a press conference in Varna which my friends sent me a link to read. At first I thought it was fake news. Something like that in Neofit Rilski – I could not believe it at all. But I decided to get in touch with the people behind this business, I talked to Ivelin and he said: “look, I will not make you believe, I will make it happen anyways , come to the first dig 1 year from now.” Okay, I went to the first dig that was two years ago, respectively, I saw a bare field near the old farming cooperative of Neofit Rilski, a place that nobody would call market. It is not very close to Varna. Although it is a few hundred meters from the highway Varna – Sofia, otherwise the place is communicative. Within a year and a half, Ivelin and his team have turned this field where they once the the cows of the village were fed into something I want to show you very briefly before we start talking to him. This behind us is actually the main building – which is the visitor center. The entrance – that’s right. Which to some extent is a replica of the Baba Vida fortress in Vidin. Here I can say that we could have made a cheaper modern building as an entrance, but we have decided to do everything – in connection with the accusations of imitation – that everything is in line with the project. In other words – in this project, which is Historical Park, everything is done to show the Bulgarian history built in the way our forefathers used to build – with natural materials. There is no plastic used, no Coca Cola, no genetically modified products and no palm oil. Everything here is completely natural, everything is Bulgarian – a paradise of Bulgaria. I want us to see, before we continue the conversation, in the distance, what is done at the first stage, this is the Neolithic settlement, at the bottom is the Thracian royal palace, and here behind us or actually at the entrance of the Historic Park itself is an incredible statue of the Thracian warrior archer, which is one of the largest on the Balkan Peninsula – 12 meters high. You can also see the parking lot, which is currently filled with visitors’ cars, because the park has been operating for more than a month since it was opened on June 22nd. And now, at the moment, it is already accepting visitors. And it accepts visitors in a way I would say is impressive and can make every museum envious. But now I will stop talking. I want to give the word to Ivelin to ask him a few things. Why such hatred? Literally hate – are they afraid of you? This thing that is being done right now, I did not suppose it could be done. I’ll tell you why. We all know that there are oligarchs in Bulgaria, who for 30 years, what they’ve done is that they have occupied every big business, everything connected with the state, everything that requires government regulation. Over the years I have understood – I have created a few rules. The first rule – not to interfere with a business where there are mobsters. And a second rule – not to interfere with a business where there is state money. I’ve always watched everything I do to be apart from all that. Where these people have no interests. I have been thinking – because this project is useful even for them – and I will say why. We are witnessing that Bulgaria has disappeared for the past 30 years. Even Vetrino’s statistics for the past 15 years – from 7,600 people have dropped to 5,500. Of these, 80% are over 60 years of age. This is the statistics – complete depopulation in Bulgaria. We all know that there can be no Bulgaria if there are no people. Here you are even doing a campaign – the Revival party – with the idea of people having more children. No children, no Bulgaria. Many Bulgarians go abroad, do not see the point of living here. And I thought these people were clever enough to see at least that. That such a project will make people believe, not to interfere with their money, but that they can fight in Bulgaria and stay. Because Bulgaria exists – they exist. They are like parasites who do not realize that when the host dies, they die too. But what happened was something that shook me. The first thing, you said it yourself that when you heard about the project, you did not believe it. It sounded too ambitious … No one believed. When I decided to do the project, the first thing I decided to do, this is important to know, I decided to make the whole project, the hardest part being in the making. It took about 6 years without receiving a penny, only giving. 6 years of work with a team of many people. I decided to make this project and when it is ready, because it has an annual return of about 25-30% under good management and I said – I will go to a rich Bulgarian – it is ready business, it is a complete project. Let that Bulgarian execute it, not give it to foreign interests. I met with the top hundred of the richest Bulgarians. And you know what I saw? People who thought I was crazy or a crook. Because they have never made an organization in which to work with people, to motivate people. They can not imagine that you can make a business from which to earn money. A type like Apple, like BMW, as well as Mercedes. Their businesses were made only around privatization and the state. They receive guaranteed money without giving anything. I saw this thing and I realized it was pointless to go this way. I went to the investment brokers – where the media blame me why I did not do it through them – What all investment intermediaries wanted from me. I will even make an interview with Niki Vassilev because I talked to him and his associates too – he liked the project very much. Former Minister of Finance? Yes, he is, by the way, a very nice person. I like him a lot. And he said – man, the project is wonderful, but in Bulgaria I do not see how it can be done. It is impossible using the stock market. But at least, admirations to him, he did not ask for me a penny, we sat down and told me what could be done. Other investment brokerages, I will not mention their names, they wanted 200,000 euros only for the business plan. And they told me, from on they will find investors. Who are the investors? The rich people in Bulgaria. But I had already been to them, and I know that there is no way finances would come from them. Or – these people, the investment brokers, wanted to take money for something they knew would not be realized because they can not, they did not know how it will should be done. And many people ask why it was not done through the stock exchange, why it was not done otherwise. The truth is – can not. If someone does something like this in Bulgaria and does it through the stock exchange, I will personally go and do whatever that person says. Yes, I say this thing – why do not we ask the question – because it is good to think critically. For 30 years, do you know of a project was made by a small person? No. None. So, for 30 years, we have no project. Okay, how do people know how to do such a project if nothing like it was ever made? So this is the first question we have to ask. A logical question. Second question – because they say you know, the project is an fake imitation. Just a second – I want to say something very important. For me as a historian and as a person who has been involved in such projects related to the restoration of authentic sites of cultural and historical heritage, because here all of it is a restoration, I just want to say that I was really worried, because so far I have witnessed how by restoring authentic objects of cultural and historical heritage – they are literally destroyed. There is nothing to explain. It’s just enough that half of the country’s population, for good or bad, is living in Sofia, Just go in the center of the city, in the center of the Bulgarian capital, go see the restoration that was made of the Roman Forum. Which was done literally in a way that distorted the old remnants. Here in this place, dear compatriots, you will not see such a thing. I was amazed when I saw the gates, the door that was made at the Thracian palace. These are 2 marble doors that are calibrated with such perfect precision that, although each of the door wings, they are two and weigh approximately one ton, it is a monolithic, marble block carved in a way – looks exactly like the original. Anyone, whether strong, weak, old, small, elderly with little pressure, can move these one-sided wings because they are perfectly calibrated in a way … And without any bearings … No bearings, yes. In the way they were made about 2,000 – 2,200 years ago their anciet originals. The Thracian analogs. Everything here is done – including the houses you can see – here you can see some of them, which are for the first time restoration of Neolithic settlements. They are made really perfect, really perfect. Inside you can see the reconstruction of prehistoric tools of labor, tools, ceramics, everything done in a perfect way. I was delighted and continue to be, so now I’m here, but let’s continue. What was the other thing? The first thing they said was that we were going to make the project a fake imitation. The publications around Mr. Prokopiev and the America for Bulgaria Foundation, which sponsor them. The first was the Slaveykov Square edition, they started with Mediapool, with some small articles a long time ago – “what a fake imitation, what a thing” without ever coming to see it. I mean these people didn’t come to talk to me. If I say who you are without knowing you and I have never spoken to you, it means that I am a malefactor. A slanderer.
Slanderer, that’s right.
And it was the first from the beginning. They put me in two traps by inviting me into their communities to discuss with professors, people of culture. Because to most people I look low on intelligence because I am from Gorna Oryahovitsa, I am not of aristocratic origin. I mean, I’m just an ordinary person, and I treat myself as such, there’s no reason to be different. And they started setting me traps for the purpose – “is this not a fake imitation, because it is not something real?” – in which I quoted Jean Baudrillard, who is one of the greatest philosophers, one of the greatest specialists in the matrix view of the world , for the Matrix we live in. And I quoted them about the simulation and simulacrum that he sees everywhere. And that for every thing that is examined, it is already a simulation, it is a simulacrum. Or, in this way, we can call everything a fake imitation also for the things that they make. And then they saw that with these methods this would not happen, because they could not maintain a dialogue with dignity and honor in a direct confrontation and could not prove that this project was not good. Then they waited, because – all viewers have to know this – they all thought that I would entice people with money or that it would not happen – and for this reason, what they did – they did not give a voice to the project anywhere. Why? Well, let them break their heads themselves and understand that this thing will not happen and come again to seek our protection. Yes, but when they started seeing that the project was a fact, then something incredible happened to them. They realized that their control was endangered. Why? Many people will say – will Historic Park change Bulgaria so much? No. The Historic Park is the first project to happen without the help of the state, without the help of EU funds, without privatization, without any famous people involved in it. Which means that people can organize themselves for whatever they want. And one project will not be successful, but three will be successful. And that’s it. No one will have any value or benefit from these oligarchs. No one will have fear. Because they are holding the funds at the moment. They have educated us, they have programmed us so that only they can do great things, and if anyone wants to do something like that, they have to go and bow their heads to them. This project destroys this whole myth. Whether it is successful or not – we’ll see that later. Most importantly, it happened without their help. Ordinary people did it. Or – they are no longer necessary. And from here on, we will also talk about people who can think: The first version was – the project is a fake imitation.
Actually the very first version was that it would not be built. The second version – the project is a fake imitation..
Third version – the project will not earn anything. Fourth version – we will entice the people involved and we will not pay their profits. And what they are doing now is denunciating to government institutions.
Every single person who has a business knows what it is like to have the following institutions enter their office from the NRA, SANS, Economic Police, Prosecutor’s Office, any of these agents to enter their office. They know that these people do not get out of there without a fine. In just a second, I want to tell you. Currently – our organization – the Revival Party – has been audited for the fourth time within the last 2 years. I repeat – the fourth time in two years. Do you know what they audit us for? The last thing they asked us to do … Revival, as you know, has a government grant that we donate. We hold in our cash register about 1000-2000 BGN. It’s separate from our account, which is money that covers small expenses. At the moment, we have somewhere in the cash register about BGN 1,100. This is the cash register of the Revival party. Do you know what the Court of Auditors asked us to do? Hold on, so you don’t fall. They wanted to record and describe the number of each banknote. They wanted to record and make a copy of the numbers of each banknote of these 1000 leva. And I decided to make a joke and wrote them a letter – “Well we have them these 1,000 leva in pennies, that is, in coins, come to copy the coins.” And now imagine the following thing, this is a project for tens of millions of leva. It is a live project, it is currently working. There’s work being done parallel to it being open. It is very large-scale. And anyone can see this thing once they come on the spot. Imagine, as Ivelin said, we gave an example with us – we have 1000 levs and they want us to photograph them banknote by banknote. How much work is that? Imagine now that you have a project for tens of millions – and over 4,000 employees … Imagine the first, second, third, fourth, fifth state institution comes and tells you – “give us copies of all contracts – oh, this contract does not look good because it is smeared, give us a second copy, give us a third copy, give us a fourth. ” I’m giving this example with us again. And another, which is … pre-emptive account seizure. The NRA, what they do is, when they go in for an audit, they make a pre-emptive seizure to the accounts to ensure that if there is a claim, they will have a secured account to get their money. That is, you will not be able to work with these funds and how will you continue working? That is, the state, as you can see – if we can call this a state, it is clear that it is working in a foreign interest, not in ours. That is not a Bulgarian state, but it is an American colony, as you like to call it, whatever. It is not our country. The state, so called, in this case plays at the level of an elementary village racketeer – or mutra (mobster). We were asked – I want to complain a little bit. When we made a report on our media campaign for the 2019 elections now for the European elections, they asked for copies of the contracts. And we gave them copies of the contracts. These copies of the contracts are also owned by the media with which we have concluded the contract. Now they wanted to give them the originals as well. Provided we give them the originals, we will no longer have them. Anyway, I give it to you to catch the scale of the total repression that is happening here. We are not mainstream in politics, he is not mainstream in business.
And worst of all – the denunciations. He is really breaking the idea of Bulgarian entrepreneurship right now.
There was nothing at all – there was nothing large-scale done. I want to ask you something else – for the denunciation, this is the worst thing, to have a denunciation. For me to go and not talk to you, because none of them has ever come to talk to me. That’s what I am saying. No one came face to face to talk with me and clarify things. There was a sneaky journalist – Yoan Zahariev, who had came to me in a completely different way and acts like a sensation, this boy. We need to see his origins, because 100% his parents, as well Prokopiev’s parents, must have some connections with the party apparatus. And, this thing I want to say is that to make a denunciation is to send Anthony Joshua to a barely walking toddler and have him knocked out. The young child – how will it ever stand up? Or – they are trying to make the business unprofitable and make sure that nothing Bulgarian will happen in Bulgaria. Which they cannot do. But one thing I wanted to ask you as an expert – because you were the director of the historical museum in Dobrich. You know how reconstructions are made. Kra Kra fortress was reconstructed with BGN 4.5 million. If it is reconstructed with 4.5 million BGN. And it has plastic elements…. What is the value of what is built here then? Someone likens it to something that is state, that is legal, that is audited, in which money has been spent. If it costs BGN 4.5 million, let’s start from somewhere. Because people have no comparison. If Kra Kra costs 4.5 million BGN, how much is this thing worth. I don’t know – about half a billion. Yes, about half a billion – yes, we’re looking at the comparison. Let’s see – Hotalic in Sevlievo. BGN 4.5 million again. If it is BGN 4.5 million – here we are again going to half a billion. Complete waste of money…. Then why are we viewed in one way and other locations in another? Do you know why – because you are doing something related to the promotion of Bulgarian History, of the Bulgarian national spirit. You have no political ambitions, they cannot accuse you of the simple trait – he is a patriot, he wants to do something to deceive the electorate. You are in business, not in politics. You receive money, you give money. That is, it is an entrepreneurial initiative, which is very unusual, however, because it is aimed at the soul of the Bulgarian. And now is the time to tell you. If it was a project that was related to everything else, just not what we are currently commenting on, to promote Bulgarian history. Including in those parts of our history that are not our Bulgarian ethnic, but are part of the heritage of the Bulgarian lands. The most ancient civilization has developed in our lands.
Because our museums, unfortunately, are not commercial, they are not mass-oriented – so to speak. To a large extent, many of them, not all, but many of them are self-sufficient. Whether it rains or snows, they are secure from a subsidy from the state. They don’t for people to come. People pay without knowing. The museum doesn’t have to earn any money, while here it has to earn. And it is for this reason that it is created as best as possible. That is why it is made perfectly and what will happen is that when a person comes here – he will educate his children and they will feel good about being Bulgarian, they will be proud. This is the reason why this project is being attacked. Do you understand? It is not because of his business plan or the details of the financing method, of course, all of that perfectly in order. They just do it because it is something that awakens the Bulgarian spirit. But to them we Bulgarians must be asleep, humiliated, enslaved, we should not be proud to be Bulgarians. Because one such person will not emigrate. He will not send his child to the USA, he will not tell him to leave Bulgaria. Go abroad, because nothing is going on in Bulgaria – telling him it’s miserable here. .Such a person will want his child to live here. This is why the Historic Park is dangerous. And unlike those people who have sent their children abroad. I don’t know if some have children at all, some one, two maximum. If they have more – it is from 4-5 women. They only spoil the biological material of Bulgaria. I have 3 children from one woman. They study in a rural village school. They are not in a private school, but also in a rural village kindergarten. Because we are one with all people, I am not different from them. If the Ministry of Tourism has given half a million leva to research why there are no tourists in Bulgaria, then our site is still worth half a billion. Because just one research on why there are no tourists, let’s think what a research needed to build this whole thing. We are making the comparison with what they say – what is real and what is not. If the budget of the Ministry of Culture is BGN 190 million and the budget of the Ministry of Tourism is 20 million or 210 million in total, I can say that the Historical Park has done more work on the promotion of Bulgarian culture. Or… 210 million of your money. Because you should not think it’s free in some museums or the fee is only 2 leva. You pay it with all the money that goes into the budget, with all the taxes and social security you don’t see. So you pay for it without even using it and it doesn’t work. So we have made more than this 210 million (which is the annual budget of these two ministries). We have done more than these two ministries. The Ministry of Culture is also repressing us. So, on the one hand, we are punk and fake, on the other, they tell us that we are real, and they are imposing a ministerial repression on us. Just to tell you what exactly is the paradox here. On the one hand, the accusations are that it is a fake imitation. On the other hand, the Ministry of Culture blames the Historical Park for being too credible. Because under the Cultural Heritage Act, when replicas and restorations are made, they must have a 10% difference from authenticity. That is, if one of the tombs is restored, here you will see a restoration of 3 Thracian tombs. Which are summarized. Especially because Ivan Marazov, who is a historian, a tracologist. He summarized them so that we have no literality. Yes, but there are discrepancies. For example, say 10% is higher or lower here than the original tomb. The figures are not 100%, they are not 6, they are not 8, but they are 16 in number. That is, there are such small discrepancies, and yet the Ministry of Culture is trying to find something to fine them for. On the one hand – you are a fake imitation, on the other – you are too real. All of these questions have been answered. Do you want to add anything else to the conclusion? I have one more thing to say. As this year everyone complains that tourism has declined in Bulgaria. And we are very dependent on Tourism. I want to say what Historic Park has done so far – the best English blogger and specialist in the field of cultural tourism (Thomas Dowson) is a fan of Bulgaria and has already written various articles. In 2016, the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences gave him the award for the best foreign, electronic article written for Bulgaria. And we invited him – from the Historical Park. Finnish blogger brought by us, Polish blogger, French blogger, five German bloggers, three Austrian bloggers. At the moment a Dutch woman is coming, people from Japan are coming, people from China are coming, people from Indonesia are coming, people from Russia are coming. And all these people are specialists in cultural tourism. They write series of articles that are about Bulgaria. And the most important thing – we did not bring them only to the Historical Park – we took them to Tsarevets, we took them to Kazanlak, we took them to Damascena, which is also a private project in Kazanlak, where the rose oil is extracted. We took them to Nessebar, we took them to Plovdiv, we took them to the Rila Monastery. And they write about all parts of Bulgaria. What the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Tourism have not done, we did it as a DONATION of our time and money. And if someone tells us how much the entrance costs or how the money is raised. Another thing – They claim we promised the investors some fabulous profits and getting rich quick. The people we are partners with – we have an agreement that the first five years of the beginning of the park – no one will receive money until we get this project going. Five years after it starts running. Where are the quick profits, where are the millions? Separately – how many people you go to and ask how much money they have in the bank will tell you? No one will tell you. How many people you ask how much they earn – to show you their cash flows …. No one will tell you. Why do they come to ask us – as a private company. And this is what the media asks us. Does the media tell US if we ask it? So this is an interference with privacy, in personal data. I would also like to say that since there are those who are libertarians, the party – which is targeted – I will not say which, allegedly, democratic party. And one guy, more like two, we were classmates back in the days. These two guys – because it was the ’90s, mobster times. I am a person who has never bowed his head. I rescued over 100 girls from rape at a time when it was a struggle to survive out here. I have never bowed. I have no problem, I’m not afraid of death and I’ve never bowed my head to anyone. I don’t put my head down – The Bulgarian doesn’t lean his head. Those guys who were the softest sheepdogs back then, and I saved them at school because they were going racketeering people, they were taking their money. They know I’m there, they know I’m the guy that always fought for the weak. The same thesis with one American Party – to which they are members. And they begin to accuse me in the lowest way. First – you’re wearing the Khan Krum T-shirt of the Vazdigane Foundation. You are advertising Bulgaria and I am with T-shirt of Tsar Simeon. I was called “The Savior of Europe or the Savior of Bulgaria” – I never said such things. I also have no political ambitions. But the media put it in my mouth. And these people, because my shirt says “Power without borders” and your “If you don’t want peace, here’s an ax.” Now they will tell you that the chairman of the Revival Party is a murderer, he wants to kill everyone – here they are the ultimate patriots. They destroyed the word patriotism. They destroyed the word patriot. Look – patriot. It is a special system by which one word is destroyed so that one is ashamed to call himself that. They destroyed patriotism. All these things, these people did it. And these two ordinary people, where I am the only shield between them and these tyrants. Because this is always the fate of the traitor. You pay a traitor as long as you have interest in him. And when you take over, the traitor is beheaded. Nobody loves traitors. And these two people who are the weakest people, you know, they are the ones in Bulgaria that I have always defended because I think the weaker people should be protected. And what happened – tell me? They started spitting against me most actively on the Internet. Since there was an article in PIK newspaper that is Peevski’s newspaper, I do not follow which media is owned by whom. Now all of a sudden Peevski is behind me? I say okay, how can when someone writes something positive – they are immediately looking to connect with the bad. Well, aren’t Capital and Dnevnik Prokopiev’s ownership. Isn’t Mediapool part of them? They are funded directly by the American State – America for Bulgaria Foundation. Isn’t Nova TV Domuschiev ownership?
Isn’t BTV Gergov’s ownership?
Is Bulgaria On Air and InvestorBG owned by TIM( mobster gang from the 90’s)? Then every media outlet is owned by somebody. Then why do you trust the TVs and those people who have been taking all this money from government for so long and I am the one who fights for you with you. I didn’t go on vacation this year – people can see my suntan. I am here and work from morning till evening. For three months, they say the project can’t happen – well, if I’m a pyramid and will run away, it’s time to run. Then, all this propaganda they are doing talking about a pyramid scheme… The main thing about pyramids is that the money goes somewhere and nothing is done. We, all the money we have raised from all our partners with whom we are – the final amount of money raised and the final amount of results produced – we have many times more money produced because we have raised its value. What kind of pyramid are you talking about when you raised value of the initial investment? If I plant 100 kg of wheat and get 1 ton, where is the pyramid, having invested money for 100 kg. It’s good to think of these things, and most importantly – we are organize a gathering on September 6th, which we called it a protest, but it won’t be a protest. I have a specific system of how we will take these people’s power without going into politics. The power they have, with consumer’s money. Because they fight for your attention. If you turn off the TV. If you start living reality, not virtuality, you will see how quickly the situation will change for you and them. That was the last thing I wanted to say. I want to thank you, and I wanted to tell you the following thing – I’ve always said it – THINK. When someone tells you something, whether it is good or bad. Think about it first – who says it? Everyone who speaks has a biography. He correctly mentioned that this journalist’s background must be inspected to see if he was in any way connected with the old party nomenclatures from before 1989. Second – see if this person benefits from what he does. Who’s paying? Look for the money – well, this is the paper trail of money, as it is well known. I am here, not because I have any interest, but I am here as a Bulgarian, because I don’t want any to spit on, to touch with dirty hands our history. People who promote our history in times, in which Bulgarian history is either a subject of ridicule and jokes, or falsified altogether and changed, and already the goal is that we Bulgarians won’t know our own history. Here you will see everything! You will see prehistory, you will see the Thracian era in ancient times, you will see the Slavs, the ancient Bulgarians – the Proto-Bulgarians, in a wonderful way. By the way, they are almost ready for both sites. You will see the epoch of the second Bulgarian kingdom. You will see all this, and in one wonderful place – I want to tell you in Bulgaria, we have no other similar site. Not that we can’t have one. We have wonderful cultural and historical monuments. But they are literally abandoned. Fortresses are crumbling, collapsing, churches collapse, fall, and no one pays attention to it – you see? However, as soon as one person decides to do something to promote Bulgarian history – this thing becomes dangerous! And he’s been doing it for 9 years! That’s why – answer the question yourself:
Who does it and why do they do it? Because these people want us to sleep – they want us to be asleep. I will remind you only the words of the great Bulgarian poet Hristo Botev: “Tell me, tell me, poor people, who is swinging you on this slave swing?” Answer it yourself. And I just want to say one more thing – you will see one more thing here. You will see real Bulgarians who work hard every day and do their best and fight regardless of the conditions and you will feel the Bulgarian spirit. This is what you will find here. Come and see it. That’s all I have left to say….. Have a nice day!
