Bulgaria's outgoing foreign minister donated all his gifts received during his four-year term to the National History Museum.

Solomon Passy's presents include art pieces and historical artifacts.

Passy became the first Bulgarian minister to donate his presents thus obeying the European standards. In most European countries, as well as in the United States, after the end of term all state employees should donate their presents to the local museums.

The museum exhibition includes presents given to Todor Zhivkov, Bulgaria's communist leader, former presidents Zhelyo Zhelev, Petar Stoyanov, President Georgi Parvanov and former Prime Minister Ivan Kostov.
