    Новата зала на Teleric Academy (където ще се проведе събитието) на Alexander Malinov 33 ли се намира, че гледам в други съобщения за други събития пише Alexander Malinov 31?

    Адресът на новата учебна зала на Телерик е Александър Малинов 31. Това е сватбения мол. Сложих линк към Google Maps с GPS коодинати. Залата е за 120 души. Дано не дойдат повече.
