Blue sky and sunshine again! Great to continue our trip towards the border town of Vidin at the Danube river.
On the 6 after Anton
Somewhere in Gorna Malina
On the 112 after Monatana
But if I tell you….
Still on the 112
Still on the 112
Somewhere in a small town
Under the A2
Outside of Lom
Vidin is about 1100 years old and was founded by Celtic settlers. The settlement evolved into a Roman fortified town. For a short time, it was occupied by Hungarians till the Ottomans took over.
In Vidin at the Dunabe
First the 1€ shops opens and if the house is lucky one fine day money poors in and it gets renovated
This one was more lucky – look quite good from the outside!
Another war memorial
The Istanbul Gate or Stambol Kapiya
Thank you British Embassy!
Perfect light from the sunset
He looks sad
Monument at the riverfront
Head to the wall – water in the mouth!
Art in the park
Probably the only entierly preserved medieval castle in Bulgaria
The Vidin Synagogue, deserted after Jewish emigration to Israel in 1940
Construction started in 1894 and it was Bulgaria’s second largest synagogue
The local community had flourished for more than five centuries after its arrival from Spain in the fifteenth century.
Old and new
A Mosque tower
Cathedral of St Demetrius. The construction of the cathedral was commenced in 1885. It is one of the biggest and most beautiful Bulgarian Orthodox cathedrals. Designed by Bulgarian and Austro-Hungarian architects and Italian engineers it mixes Western and Orthodox influences. The turret clock was built by the Munich clockmaker Mannhardt and it has been working without a fault since 1900 – German quality!
