      Resurrection of Saint Spas

      Very soon the citizens of Sofia and tourists coming to Bulgaria's capital will be able to visit the medieval church of St Spas, the remnants of which are preserved right at the heart of the city. The archaeological layers uncovered at this place are abundant in artefacts and date back to different epochs. Among them are an antique street from the 2nd-3rd centuries, part of the fortification wall of ancient Serdica with a round tower and a medieval church from the 11th-13th centuries. All these monuments will be converted into a new archaeological complex.

      Kostov hides his dark past, names Dogan and Peevski as enemies

      You can tell Google to erase you from its memory (requesting the removal of specific results for queries that include your name from Google Search is actually an option).

      This Peevski is not that Peevski

      “Peevski granted permission to build in Mladost,” pronounces a headline in the website Frognews owned by Ognyan Stefanov (aka Agent Academician). And some too-busy-to-read-further resident of the aforementioned neighbourhood in the capital Sofia undoubtedly got up in arms about the fact that Peevski would be building something in the area. This Peevski, however, is not that Peevski.

      He is Ognyan before God, agent Academician before State Security and ardent opponent of Peevski before society

      In 1986 the informers of the State Security Agency numbered 61,000. Some of those “collaborators” are still active. And are still suffering from multiple personality disorder being torn between their life of ordinary citizens and the role of secret agents. Among the State Security activists there is one journalist, who today caters for the interests of fugitive banker Tsvetan Vassilev.
