“Bulgaria as a holiday destination was not really on my priority list.
Julita and Dimitri convinced me to attend the 2014 edition of Arbanassi Summer Music. I had a wonderful time and very much enjoyed the warm human contacts, relaxing atmosphere and above all the heavenly musical programme.

This year I'll attend the festival for the third time."

Walter Van Pottelberge, board member of companies amongst which the Royal Flemish Philharmonic and Chairman of Patrons Committee Arbanassi Summer Music
