The Knights Templar are to launch excavation works in the Danube town of Russe to find out traces of order's members, who have once passed through Bulgaria and the Balkans.

The order is to finance the initiative, called "Nisovo Project", is to be launched after Russe citizens signalled they noticed "interesting stone crosses" in the region.

The Templar Knights consider also making archaeological excavations in the town of Veliko Tarnovo, where they will look for a medieval catholic temple.

In order to achieve that aim, the knights will prepare a joint program with the Mayor Rumen Rashev.

Bulgaria's Prior Rumen Ralchev has announced the order is to built one of the most modern houses for old people in Europe, which will be situated near the seaside town of Kavarna.
