Bulgaria's Top Ski Resort Borovetz Severely Affected by Gas Shortage

Published Date: 06 Jan 2009

The shortage of natural gas over the Russia-Ukraine dispute might ruin the holiday seasons at Bulgaria's winter resort of Borovetz.

This becomes clear from a statement by the Samokov Municipality, where Borovetz is located, reported by the Pari Daily.

The Samokov Mayor Angel Nikolov has sent letters to the Council of Ministers, the Ministry of Energy and Economy, and the state-owned gas monopoly Bulgargaz asking them to secure the necessary quantities of natural gas for the top ski resort where all the hotels and other tourist establishments rely on gas-fueled heating.

At the same, Bulgaria's other top winter resort Bansko is not affected at all by the gas shortage as all of its facilities are running on gasoline and diesel, the Bansko Mayor Alexander Kravarov announced as quoted by the Pari Daily.
