Posted on Updated on

Bulgaria’s southern city of Plovdiv and Italy’s “Subterranean City” Matera have been chosen to represent the European Capital of Culture in 2019.

Plovdiv is to receive a budget of 20 million to implement the program with which it won the competition. The money is to be allocated under the state budget for the next few years to come. Plovdiv is also to seek additional funding at a later stage of the implementation of the program for regional schemes involving other localities, according to reports of the Bulgarian National Radio.
