Eight Thracian treasures from Bulgaria are already attracting crowds at the main lobby of the European Parliament in Brussels.
The exhibit, which showcases Bulgaria's ancient past and culture, is going to be officially opened Tuesday evening by Prime Minister Boyko Borisov and the President of the European Parliament, Jerzy Buzek. It is organized on the initiative of the Member of EP from Borisov's ruling Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria, GERB, party, Emil Stoyanov, in partnership with the Culture Ministry and the National History Museum.
Bulgaria's EU Commissioner, Kristalina Georgieva, is also going to attend the ceremony.
The display has over 100 objects from 6 Bulgarian museums and includes treasures discovered in Panagyurishte, Rogozen, Letnitsa, Borovo, Malomirovo and Dalakova Mogila.
