корица Монтана 2021 33On December 2, 2021, the volume Montana: a modern city of 130 years (Tendril Publishing House) was presented in the exhibition hall of the Regional History Museum in Montana. Its compiler is Prof. Dr. habil. Alexandre Kostov, Corresponding Member of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. The book is dedicated to the 130th anniversary of the proclamation of the village (Golyama) Kutlovitsa as a town named after the Bulgarian prince Ferdinand. Thus begins a new stage in the history of the place, formed in Antiquity. Its development over the past thirteen decades has undergone major socio-economic and political transformations. Perhaps, the proof of these frequent and profound changes during this period is the change of its name - from Kutlovitsa to Ferdinand (1891) and Mihaylovgrad (1945) to reach today's - Montana (since 1993), reminiscent of the ancient past of this settlement.
