The project of the Kardzhali municipality ''Perperikon - past for the future'' received a funding approval Thursday.

Kardzhali mayor Hasan Azis signed a EU-grant contract valued at EUR 748 203, as announced by the municipality's Press Office. The grant is provided through the financial mechanism of the European Economic Area in the field of restoration, renovation and protection of the cultural heritage of the region.

The project entails activities set to continue the preservation and social inclusion of the archaeological complex in the Bulgarian tourist map. A portion of the ancient complex will be restored, conserved and exported from the site located near the south-western part of the Acropol.

Planned activities are set to last approximately 13 months.
