Bulgaria Mulls Renovation of Chalets to Suit Foreign Mountaineers

Society | September 5, 2002, Thursday // 00:00

Bulgarian Tourists Union (BTU) mulls how to finance the renovation of mountain chalets. With three European mountain routes (E3, E4, E8) crossing natural attractions-rich Bulgaria, hundreds of Dutch, German, British, Polish and Czech mountaineers visit BTU's two hundred and seventy chalets. Although being extremely cheap, they offer far than poor conditions in most cases. BTU activists will seek state subsidies for raising quality while keeping pocket-friendly prices. The 47th congress of the mountaineers' union will take place September 7 and 8 in the Rila Mountains at the only mountain school in Eastern Europe that trains climbers, rescue workers and cavers. BTU was founded in 1895 by foreign universities' graduates that picked up their passion from European mountain enthusiasts.
