Welcome to Stara Zagora. Known more as a great place to shop with it endless number of shops & endless number of bars & cafes. This modern town is excellent for if you want to just get away and walk. There are few parks and centers of attraction. The center of Stara Zagora is the part I have visited and the pictures are from that area of the town.

Located at the foot of the Sredna Gora mountains, Stara Zagora is one of the most ancient settlements in Europe. It has been inhabited for at least 8000 years.

    It is not a church or old Bulgarian style. It is a mosque. It was built during the tyrannical Ottoman rule in BG. This building and one more were the only ones that survived after the town was burned down when the Turks were pushed away from Bulgaria.
