The Norwegian tourists who witnessed the shooting drama at Sunny Beach in Bulgaria on Wednesday night are still in shock. The travel company Apollo has not offered them support so far.

Everyone are simply in complete shock, Lisbeth Stoltz said.
She was at the restaurant at Sunny Beach on Wednesday night when several armed men stormed the place and opened fire during a drug settlement.
Stoltz came home to Norway on Thursday with several other Norwegian tourists who were present during the incident.

– We have talked together and there was a lot of crying and hugging at the airport. Apollo has not contacted us since we got home, she says.
On Wednesday Apollo had a total of 25 guests who dined at the local restaurant. Of these, 25 went 23 home early today as planned. According to the travel company, most are well considering.
– They are all on good form, but of course it is a frightening experience. It is very sad that our guests are experiencing such an event on their holiday. We are first and foremost glad that there were no physical injuries, says press contact Christine Hafnor Apollo.
The travel company has urged tourists to contact their insurers if they want professional emergency help.
– Otherwise, they are welcome to contact us if there is something more we can contribute with.
Currently, Apollo has not received any cancellations to Bulgaria as a result of the incident at the Sunny Beach.

  1. Don’t even think to go on holiday in Bulgaria. STAY AWAY. In this country the mafia is everywhere especially in the resorts and the police do nothing to stop them and even worst, the police cooperate with the gangs. You cant be sure for your and your children safety and that what happened in that pub few days ago in Sunny Beach is a real proof for the Bulgarian reality at the moment.

  2. Mafia only target mafia… not innocent people… it is pure scare mongering to say Bulgaria isn’t safe… It’s safer than a lot of other European countries… and I know I’d rather be in Bulgaria than France right now and I’m British so not just defending my country
