Border Barrier of Kulata Checkpoint to be exhibited in National Museum of History  
The border barrier of Kulata checkpoint will be exhibited in the National Museum of History. The barrier will be given to the museum’s director Prof. Bozhidar Dimitov. Today he saw the new possessions, which the museum received after Kulata customs office on the Bulgarian-Greek was closed.

“I found out that the customs office had existed for 1,200 years”, Prof. Dimitov told Focus News Agency. He added that the museum kept customs seals from the medieval customs office in Debelt (at the time of Tsar Boris I). Besides, the museum has customs seals from the time of the Principality of Bulgaria and East Rumelia. “I hope that I will live to the time, when the museum will exhibit the border barriers, the signs and seals of the border checkpoints with Macedonia”, Prof. Bozhidar Dimitrov added.
