Summary/Abstract: The protection of cultural heritage would be incomplete without criminal protection by criminalizing offenses on cultural values. Before the adoption of the Law on Cultural Heritage and the relevant amendment and supplement to the Criminal Code of 2009, Bulgarian criminal law settled schematically this matter. An attempt has been made then to establish a significantly more comprehensive system of crimes involving cultural values. However, a number of problems arise from the necessity to relate the concepts set out in the Law on Cultural Heritage to the individual elements of the crimes under the Criminal Code. For example: the concept of cultural value and the objects of crime; the conditions provided for carrying out various activities with cultural values and the definition of some offensive acts, consequences involving public hazards, etc.
