Today, in the building of the "Lyuben Karavelov" Regional Library, the last initiative of the year took place on the occasion of 130 years since the foundation of the first Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Bulgaria. The ceremony of sealing the time capsule was honored by the mayor of Ruse Municipality Pencho Milkov, the deputy mayor Zlatomira Stefanova, the director of the library Teodora Evtimova, the executive director of the Chamber Milen Dobrev, as well as a representative of the Regional Administration - Ruse.
A regional library was chosen for the event not by chance - in 1911, the emblematic building was built as the seat of the Chamber of Commerce.
16 of the best essays that took part in the RTIK competition earlier this month found a place in the capsule, the first of 130 bottles of a limited series of wine from Nisovo (produced especially for the 130th anniversary), a photo album with photographs of the city by the famous Ruse photographer Yavor Michev, a replica of the first seal of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, used over a century earlier. The capsule will be opened on April 15, 2040 - to mark the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Chamber of Commerce.
The representatives of all institutions expressed the hope that the future generations will live in a greener, developed and populous Ruse, and will observe with a smile the "archival footage" that their predecessors left them with initiatives like today's.
