In old Bulgarian tradition, the guests were welcomed with bread and salt served by the hosts.

The visit and the walk through of the architectural and historical complex “South Fortress and Tower” passed into a casual atmosphere, as all of the guests were acquainted with the projects implemented by Sozopol Foundation and the Municipality of Sozopol, the creation of the complex, which allows all visitors to touch the centuries-old history of “polos” Apolonia – Sozopol.

Rear Admiral Mitko Petev, Commander of the Bulgarian Navy and Vice Admiral Nicholas Tsunis, Chief of the General Staff of the Navy of the Hellenic Republic handed over to the host – Kiril Arnautski, commemorative plaques.
