WHAT IS RAM "CENTRAL STARA PLANINA"

RAM Central Stara planina is a free-will association of local authorities. It was constituted as a non-governmental organization in November 1997 by 5 municipalities. Today the Association unites 15 mountain and semi-mountain municipalities, situated on 7800 sq. km on the northern slopes of Stara Planina Mountain with 350 000 inhabitants.

From its establishment until now the Regional Association of Municipalities Central Stara Planina actively supports the local authorities, advocates their interest and contributes to the strengthening of the local governance in Bulgaria.
