   The article by Slavka Radicheva in the today?s edition of the Maritsa Newspaper gives the following valuable information: The number of ions in Pamporovo is three to four times higher than alongside the seawater. For some 10 minutes the phytoncide belt surrounding the resort destroys all the disease-causing microorganisms. The beautiful scenery itself acts as a powerful healing factor to the nervous system. The climate-therapy has its best effect from June to September.
All that information found its place in the newly published book ?Pamporovo ? 70 years? by four Chepelare-based authors, which was presented to the audience yesterday as part of the 70th anniversary celebrations. A two-day event dedicated to the culture tourism took place with the participation of foreign experts. The message expressed by Andres Estirado from Spain, a culture-tourism tour operator, was the following: ?Don?t lose your identity, respect your monuments, your culture, your language, and do all the necessary for the rest to respect you?.
 His warning was that 5 years from now Bulgaria will not get funding but pay taxes to the EU, therefore all the money acquired today should be very efficiently used.
