WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU? © Stamen Manolov

Arguably Bulgaria's ugliest town, this place does have its charms, especially if you are interested in Communist-era industrial history.

With its huge heavy industry factories, some of which in various stages of dilapidation as they were abandoned years ago when planned economy collapsed, it is something of a Bulgarian Manchester or Pittsburgh. It is worth trying to explore the enormous halls, now overgrown with grass and even trees, from the inside, but most visitors are content with just passing through by the main road, which is in fact the best observation platform.

Hidden Treasures of Bulgaria

Dr Iglika NikolovaDr Iglika Nikolova is one of our readers who guessed correctly Malko Tarnovo as the answer to our Where In Bulgaria Quiz from issue 105. She is the one who wins our book Hidden Treasure of Bulgaria 2. Iglika is a dentist specialising in implantology and orthodontics and has a practice in Erlangen, Germany. She reads Vagabond because it is one of the few media outlets in Bulgaria which make her proud of being a Bulgarian as the magazine writes about known things in a new and fresh way. She is still remembering our article on Black Sea bonito, in issue 97. In Bulgaria, she would recommend to a foreigner the Valley of the Roses in May, Tyulenovo and Tsarevo. What she doesn't like in Bulgaria are the lack of humanity in some areas, of care for the nature and of politeness.
