    Oh well, I guess not every Roman bridge has to be some kind of architectural wonder. Too bad about those Turkish Baths, though.

    Frankly speaking our visit in Melnik [missed Rozenski Manastir] and your feedbacks are not encouraging re-visit.

    Very interesting and always rewarding to (re-) read your tips, Nina! Is there a special meaning in Slavonic langages for -nik as well? A lot of towns seem to have this suffix.
