The Bulgarian tourists currently stranded in a Spanish hotel are to return to their home country on Monday, authorities have stated.

They travelled there under the program Golden Spain, which offers preferential off-season prices for people over the age of 55.

The tourists were scheduled to leave Saturday after a week-long vacation, organized by the On Travel Company, only to be told they could not provide a return trip home.

The Bulgarian Embassy in Spain has now told the Bulgarian National Radio that the tourists are expected to travel back to Bulgaria on Monday. The Embassy will also bring food and water to the stranded Bulgarians.
