Changes in Law on Tourism
In June 2005, as part of the preparation process of Bulgaria towards the EU accession, changes were introduced in the Law on Tourism. The most significant aspect of the Law was the provision of identical prices for foreign and Bulgarian tourists. By the end of 2006 the Bulgarian State Tourism Agency is also expected to propose a bill, which will regulate hostels and apartment complexes and information centers. Its scope will include tour guides, ski instructors and mountain guides.
