Everyone interested in Plovdiv's literary past and present will have an opportunity to learn about the city's spiritual history by visiting places and monuments dedicated to notable people and events in the city's literary life. This is a somewhat nontraditional way of entering the literary spaces and will be implemented through original tours across the city along several literary routes.
Led by knowledgeable tourist guides, the participants will be meeting with specialists, writers, actors and artists. The tours will be summarised in a brief, written guide. The concept and literary texts for the talks will be prepared by Dr Vladimir Yanev, a teacher at the Paisii Hilendarski University of Plovdiv who studies Bulgarian literary heritage.
