"Pizza, Beer and a Flash New Train" Asenovgrad by johngayton
Asenovgrad Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 71 photos
I'd put Asenovgrad on my list of places to visit for the simple reason that I've tried a few of their wines. However this visit was merely on a whim, having just gotten back to Plovdiv after an afternoon out in Karlovo and with nothing particular planned for my evening. It was damp and dark by the time I arrived in the town on a January evening and so all I did was have a few beers and a pizza before heading back to Plovdiv.
It was a pleasant enough short visit and the most I paid for a beer was 1.50 leva and so it made for a cheap night out!
The trains that run between Plovdiv and Asenovgrad are the most modern in the Bulgarian Railway Company's (BDZ) fleet and the line has recently been fully electrified following an infusion of government and EU money.
Asenovgrad, whilst quite an economically important and historically interesting town, isn't actually so important that it justifies this all-singing, all-dancing, train service (17 a day) but the line passes through Krumovo where the Plovdiv International Airport is located and obviously the train connection is part of the forward planning for the airport's developement.

- Pros:Certainly Seems Friendly Enough
- Cons:Too Dark To Notice Any
- In a nutshell:Must Revisit In The Daylight!
If you're heading to or from the railway station and fancy a nibble on the hoof, or to sit and enjoy a couple of cheap... more travel advice
