Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov will lead a delegation of top tourism officials to Bulgaria on Monday in a symbolic visit designed to show that terrorism will not stop tourism.

Stas Misezhnikov said that when terrorism hit Israel in the past, and various countries warned against traveling to Israel, Israel's reaction was that "terrorism knows no boundaries" and makes no distinction between nationalities.

"Despite the sadness and concern, we cannot be deterred or give in," he said. "Terrorism will not disrupt our lives and stop our aspirations. Tourism is a bridge to peace, understanding and dialogue between nations and it has the power to strengthen our mutual relationship with the Bulgarian people and the Bulgarian government."

The visit comes amid reports of numerous cancellations to the Bulgarian Black Sea resorts of Burgas and Varna which were primed to receive tens of thousands of Israeli tourists this summer.
