General Director, Mr. Nevzat Kütük said that he was very much pleased to see the directors of Plevne 1877 Museum and the Attaché Mr. Şenol Genç. He added as follows: “Of course, history is the science that sets the positions of the nations on the Earth. It gives different roles to the nations and they take their seats in the stage of history with their success or failure. In this framework, I am pleased to be together with people on the platform of universal values in the context of culture, art, literature, history and museology with whom we shared a common past in a period in history. I hope we will develop efficient relations and work on common values.”
The Attaché in the Turkish Embassy in Sofia, Mr. Şenol Genç, said as follows: “We will be pleased to have cultural, social and artistic activities with the Plevne Panorama. There is no ideology of culture and art. We need to develop something out of the values of today in the name of culture and art.
The delegation then visited the Panorama 1453 Museum of History and Turkish World Cultural Homes.
General Director, Mr. Nevzat Kütük, presented the book named “Ageless Istanbul” as gift to the delegation. Dr. Asparuhov, on behalf of the delegation, presented a placard of cube made out of the bullets of Gazi Osman Paşa, the hero of Plevne.
