This morning I received various old Persian-language magazines from Tehran. Among them was a copy of Ferdowsi Monthly which includes a rare photo of the late Bulgarian President Georgi Traykov Girovski during his visit to Persepolis in 1967.
"Persepolis" was the ceremonial capital of ancient Persia (Iran), which has been founded on the 6th century BC.
Georgi Traykov Girovski was the President of Bulgaria since 1964 to 1971. Shortly before his 1967 trip to Persia, Mohammad-Reza Shah Pahlavi, the king of the country, was his guest in Sofia to expand the ties between two countries.
