Nikolina Angelkova, the Tourism Minister of Bulgaria is carrying on her initiations to turn Bulgaria into a year-round holiday destination in the world. Of late, she has launched a postage stamp; an item which the minister believes will assist to endorse Bulgaria in a proper way. It’s a 7 by 9 centimetres stamp that shows Rila Monastery and Kazanlak Tomb, the two key attractions of Bulgaria. Both are UNESCO cultural heritage places of the country. Tetyana Uzunova, the chief designer explained that she selected Bulgaria’s roots and ancient civilizations, as these items could make an impression on the tourists forever.
The new stamp has been devoted to 2017, as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. Minister Angelkova also expressed that the postal publication of the stamp would be displayed at the 22nd session of the United Nations World Tourism Organization General Assembly in Chengdu, China, which will occur in coming September. “There I will personally have the opportunity to present the publication to high-ranking figures from around the world”, the minister stated.
However, in this age of electronic mail, probably a stamp alone won’t succeed in creating a major breakthrough of the promotional efforts of the Ministry. Nevertheless, better projects are in the pipeline. Minister Angelkova has improved the budget in terms of showcasing Bulgaria as a tourist destination. In addition, a video competition was launched for the same purpose. Furthermore, in different tourism fairs all over the world, Bulgaria presents itself as an attractive destination!
