Project status

The official projections of the 3D Mapping Show were held in Gorna Oryahovitsa in the followings periods: 27-30.05.2019, 21-22.09.2019 and 28-29.09.2019 and in period 07-28.10.2019 the show was projected in Rosiorii de Vede.

The activity Establishment of Virtual Museum in Municipality of Gorna Oryahovitsa and Municipality Rosiorii De Vede is behind the schedule because B2 failed to sign the contract for acquisition of equipment for Establishment of Virtual Museum Municipality Rosiorii De Vede, there is a risk that this activity could not be implemented in time. In order to prevent this problem the LB initiated an addendum requesting the extension of the implementation period with 10 months.
