The Bulgarian city of Plovdiv will be the country's European capital of culture in 2019, the European Commission announced Friday, beating off Sofia, Varna and Veliko Turnovo in the process. EU ministers are expected to formally nominate Plovdiv in May 2015. The title is a tourism-booster for the town concerned.
