The first Bulgarian banknote ever printed was shown briefly in the town of Veliko Tarnovo, media reported.

The BGN 20 bill drew much attention during an exhibition of the Bulgarian National Bank (BNB).

That was the first time for the banknote to be taken away from the town of Gabrovo, where it is being kept at the local History Museum.

The bill, originally printed in Russia, was valid from 1885 to 1907.

It was displayed in Veliko Tarnovo's Regional History Museum for five hours only.
