“From the moment from which our Metropolitan town started to think freely and act independently, he had all the ambition to catch and control in the near future technological developments and cultural benefits of the West.”
This is a quote from the statement of Dimitar A. Georgiev (Head of Lighting Department, Sofia Municipality), With title: Electricity Supply of Sofia (1900-1937).
We recently spoke with friends about Electricity and I was curious when it went down the wires in Sofia.
It turned out that the first light bulb in Bulgaria was not in Sofia, but in Gabrovo!
It’s nice that not only the capital is the leader, right!
