A road well traveled

The antiques world is fascinating. Unfortunately, because of the abundance and the value of antiques, they are targets for criminals all over the world.

For example, check out this story from Standart News:

The police say that there are about 200,000 treasure hunters in
Bulgaria, working in over 300 organized groups. Each of these groups
makes one or two million levs a year.

Western experts say Bulgaria is the third largest supplier of antiques in Europe.

Antiques, mafia, treasure hunters, smugglers … Disturbing, but fascinating.
