The initiative is organized under the auspices of the Regional Governor of Varna – Mr. Stoyan Pasev, with the assistance of the OD of the Ministry of Interior – Varna.
The Talyana district was established a few years ago in the central part of Varna with the vision to develop as a region of creative industries.
