"Seven years ago, when Tuida Fortress opened its doors, we were a newly formed team that didn't know where to go. Suddenly, one by one, these people appeared in our lives and shook our hand, thanks to them, today an image of a place where history is alive, you can see it, touch it, taste it.Each of them over the years has advised us, given us guidance, answered our questions, trained us.The result is that Tweed has become not only the tourist heart of Sliven, but a center of science, culture, entertainment and recreation, a place where everyone can find something for themselves, but nothing would be the same if the Municipality of Sliven was not behind us in every initiative, On behalf of the Tweed team, I would like to thank each of the participants for always being there and the Sliven Municipal Administration for never telling us No. We created the Remember the Glory Fair from one country to show the way of life of the people in our historical past, on the other hand to promote the site to wider audiences in an alternative way, and on the third hand to bring together all these people who help us all year round. As a result, however, "Remember the Glory" grew into something bigger, we transferred the motto in all aspects of our work, in our visits to schools and kindergartens, in our participation in national and international forums, in welcoming every tourist who crossed the gates of Tuida . We are proud that if you ask any Sliven child today which historical place he wants to visit, he will exclaim Tuida. Personally, I have a dream and it has become my mission to make Tweed a living place, evolving, preserving the memory of the past and preserving the heritage of our ancestors. "
