Breaking News

Scientific exploration of the Roman city of Nove, located near the town of Svishtov, will begin in June 2007.

One of the Bulgarian teams to work on the site will arrive in June. A team from Sofia University and one from the Warsaw University should arrive later, Focus news agency reported.

Exploration began in 1960, when a Bulgarian-Polish team started inspecting the region near Svishtov...

Svishtov mayor Stanislav Blagov said that urgent measures were needed to preserve Nove’s remains.

Current regulations have some loopholes that allow treasure hunting, Blagov said. All such ambiguities should be dealt with.

Blagov said that to address the issue, the municipality has hired security guides. So far police has not received any signals concerning treasure hunting in the vicinities of Nove.
