BGN 24,000 were granted to the municipality of Sofia, which maintains the park
Simeon Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and his sister, Maria Luisa Hrobok, were ordered to pay the state $ 93,433 in the Vrana case. This is evident from the Sofia city council's decision (Sofia City Court), where the monarchs must return the palace and the whole building complex.
Most of the expenses, however, were due to the Metropolitan Municipality, which maintained the Vrana Park, but after the court decision it had to be distributed. She was instructed to pay state BGN 724.106. The reason – the municipality was the majority of the complex. The park extends to 958,510 square meters.
The state will also have to pay for the expenses of the royal family – BGN 20.807 to Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and BGN 12.435 to Maria Louisa. BGN 192 541 thanks the state to the five cousins of Saxony-Coburg-Gotha, for which the court accepted that they had nothing to do with the property.
However, the costs may rise because they are only due to the process that initially took place.
The change of ownership will only take place if the decision of the city council of Sofia is confirmed by the above examples and becomes effective. Another condition is that the royal family receives more than BGN 1.3 million from the state for the restoration and improvement of the palace.
The Court has ruled that Vrana is owned by the State Institute of Intendant, which has a notarial deed. Judge Petya Aleksieva says, without evidence, that Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and his sister said that their grandfather, King Ferdinand, personally bought the land and then built the buildings with his own money. "Even if the property was owned by Kings Ferdinand and Boris III, the state became the owner of the property through the nationalization of the property of the families of the former kings and their descendants on 31 December 1947." , the court also pointed out.
"The intention is the other" me "of the king, it is identical to the king and not to the state," said Sofia's city council decision to Nova TV Maria Louisa's lawyer Valia Gigova. Her colleague Eli Hristova said that all newspapers from 120 show that the building was bought and built by the royal family. "The state has no document that even paid a cent for" Vrana, "Hristova added.
Logically, another opinion was put forward by lawyer Mariana Popova of Savva and Co, who protects the state.
"The state chose the only right decision to go to court and settle the dispute with a court order, there were also votes to keep the property, to expel Mr. Saxe-Coburg Gotha and to have him prove his rights. The state chose the difficult, slow and expensive way – via a court, "BT Ti Popova said.
The Metropolitan Municipality opened the Park for Visitors in 2013. Since then it has been visited by over 300,000 people, although the royal garden can only be explored during the weekend.
The entrance fee is BGN 5. Despite the court's ruling, the municipality hopes that Vrana will remain open to the public and will continue to drive the park.

And she boasted that the court's ruling on "Vrana" was a confirmation of their claim that the state should not sign an agreement with the king as it was.
