The devices are rented for 17 euros a day.
As of June 1, the city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, began to provide tourist guide service in audio format, through the use of small devices that are rented for 17 euros a day.
The initiative was born from the hand of a private company that has invested 80,000 levas (40,900 euros) in the project.
For Plovdiv some 50 devices were assigned, which contain information about 25 attractions in the city. They include a compact card, headphones and coupons for free entry to the Trak Museum of Art, the Museum of Armenian History and a discount at the Puldin restaurant, located in the old town of Plovdiv.
The available languages in the audio guides are English, Russian and Bulgarian. They were chosen based on the statistics of tourists who have frequented the city in the last ten years. Subsequently, the Greek and Turkish languages will be incorporated.
Audio tour guides will be available in the capital, Sofia, starting next week.
