Plovdiv 2019 with excursions in Greece

Exported events in the Greek city of Heraklion will have the initiative “Plovdiv 2019” next year, when our city will be the European Capital of Culture. This was agreed by Mayor Ivan Totev and his Greek counterpart Vassilis Larnenos.

A roadmap for common actions of Plovdiv and Heraklion has already been drawn up. Its main point is joint activities and policies in the field of culture and tourism. In addition, the Plovdiv experts will work with their Greek colleagues on the line for the preservation of the cultural historical and archeological heritage – whatever is in Plovdiv and Heraklion meets literally at every step.

It is expected next year in Plovdiv for artists and events from the Greek city to visit, said the mayor of Plovdiv, Ivan Totev, after the meeting with the mayor of Heraklion.

The aim of the European Capital of Culture is to contribute to the rapprochement of European nations. We are actively working in this direction because we can get to know each other better and to promote our cities precisely through the intercultural dialogue, “Totev commented.
