... from the main hostel; the room was excellent and I
liked the common room and kitchen.
Shortly afterwards I went out to do some shopping. I admired the clearest view of the mountains yet, walked to the Ladies' Market to look for brussel sprouts (unsuccessfully - I've heard they they only appear on sale in Bulgaria for a couple of days in a year), visited one or two shops and when my legs got tired I sat down in Sveti ...

He and other volunteers lead these tours 365 days a year. We follow him to St. Nedelya which he explains means St. Sunday in Bulgarian. He tells the story of the 1924 bombing. The communist terrorists first killed a general, knowing that his funeral would be held here and attended by King Boris. They managed to ...
