The funds are provided by “Pleven Marathon 2016”, and the NGO “Ritzari bez bronya” (Knights without armor), and the project will be managed by Pleven Municipality in connection with the mass sport development in the city.
The outdoor gyms are increasingly becoming an accessible means of active mass sport outside They are a great alternative for physical activity as well as a way for people of different ages, especially the youngest, to be socialized.
