It is kept under special conditions, ensuring not only its security but also its physical protection,' head of Saints Cyril and Methodius National Library, Associate professor Krasimira Alexandrova, told the Bulgarian National Radio.

A digital version of Vasil Leski's notebook would also be presented and it would be available for smart phones, it was reported.
