Georgi Rakovski Remembered - Not Just in Yambol


Georgi Rakovski is remembered here in this image with some flowers in Yambol. He also has a street named after him. Just a little background. He was was a 19th-century Bulgarian revolutionary, freemason, writer and an important figure of the Bulgarian National Revival and resistance against Ottoman rule. He died in Bucharest after leaving his mark in Bulgaria's history. As always, Bulgarians have pride in their history and are reminded in pictures, statues and plaques, not just in Yambol but in most if not all Towns and Cities in Bulgaria of their influential forefathers.

Cozy Yambol Restaurant at Night


It may have a Christmas feel but no such thoughts on this picture of a Yambol Restaurant that attracts customers with its welcoming ambience. The tepid temperature walking thought Yambol City Centre is a relief from the searing heat we have experienced recently.

A Sheltered Walk in Yambol City Centre


In the blistering heat of the day with the sun blazing down it is a relief to get shelter from these uncomfortable elements in Yambol City Centre. The ideal solution is to line the street with trees, an idea as old as the trees themselves which have been established here many decades ago.

The Splendid Water Fountains in Yambol City Centre


These fountains have been here for a couple of years now, I can't remember what it was like before they arrived as they are a splendid sight to sit by and rest. In the night they light up with changing colours, worth waiting until dark to see, which many Yambol people do.

Yambol's Library a Stone's Throw Away From The Post Office


Yambol's Library hasn't changed in the last decade and many, including myself use it as a useful time piece with big clocks on two side of the building. You can see The Post Office on the right just a stone's throw away.

Hobi - A Yambol Store Containing Quality German Furniture/Hardware


Hobi is the name of the shop where some fantastic quality second hand furniture from Germany is for sale. Don't be deceived by the shop front, inside is an Aladdin's' Cave. Never knew this was here until three months ago and pop in at least once very two weeks to see new stock. And yes I bought many items here for my home - Why pay more for new inferior products?

(I will tell and show you another similar store later in Yambol.)
