Construction works in Bulgaria’s Black sea capital – Varna has been banned for the summer season. However, on May 24 City hall officials have spent the public holiday playing hide and seek games with construction workers. That was announced by the mayor of Varna’s Primorski district, Plamen Gradinarov, as quoted by the local Cherno More daily newspaper.
Gradinarov was referring to the order issued by Varna mayor Kiril Yordanov, according to which all construction works should be put on hold for the duration of the summer season, which already started.
Nevertheless, at 6.45am on May 24, when Bulgaria was preparing to celebrating the day of Slavonic alphabet, residents of one of Varna’s affluent neighborhood Chaika, next to the sea garden, alarmed Gradinarov that a company was working on a construction site.
It is said that workers were trying to lay the concrete foundation of a five star hotel. Gradinarov’s employees had to chase the workers around, who ran away the minute Gradinarov’s people arrived at the construction site.
After being “ambushed” Gradinarov said the workers were caught and fined.
