Graveyard, Deceased, Yambol People, Yambol,

We all die and graveyards are ever expanding. No exception here in Yambol with more space required for deceased Yambol people made by reclaiming land outside the graveyard. This trend will continue naturally.

Uriah Heap, Yambol,

Considering Yambol is a town totally unknown to most of the world, to get famous bands to play here is an achievement. Uriah Heap performing on the 2nd June what a treat.

The Facade of Mehana (Restaurant) Orestiada in Yambol

Facade, Mehana, Restaurant, Orestiada Yambol,

You go back in time whenever this facade of this restaurant (Mehana Orestiada) is seen. Looks almost like an American Wild West scene. However, I have been told not to order spare ribs there as there is not much meat on them.

The Ritual Centre in Yambol

The Ritual Centre, Yambol,

Tucked away a little south of Yambol City Centre is the Ritual Centre. It has recently been cleaned up and now standing in pristine condition. A lovely place to sit and enjoy an even more quieter place that the main centre seating area. Glad too many people don't know about this.

The Theatre in Yambol City Centre From Further Afar

Theatre, Yambol City Centre, Yambol, Further Afar,

the vast majority of pictures taken of the Theatre are directly from the front of the building. this is a natural choice for most as the building is symmetrical and lends people to want a symmetrical picture. So against the grain a non symmetric shot of the Theatre is taken here to spoilt the party, To be quite honest the Theatre looks great from all angles.

The CBC or Commercial Business Centre in Yambol City Centre

CBC, Yambol, Commercial Business Centre, Yambol City Centre,

Love it or hate it this massive complex namely the CBC or Commercial Business Centre in the Centre of Yambol stands dominantly still in pristine condition. Personally I hate it has no personality and of course most of the building is a abandoned due to lack of business. Better off turning it into apartments I think.

St Nicholas, Church, Rises, Long Grass, Yambol,

It was very noticeable that the long grass in the church of St. Nicholas grounds needed attention. However I took the opportunity to capture the church rising above the overgrowth before the grass cutter arrive; and they will soon.

USA '94 Remembered on a Yambol Wall

USA '94, World Cup, Football, Remembered, Yambol, Wall, Germany,

Not sure how long this has been around but USA '94 is there for a very good reason. Can you guess? World Cup football took place with Bulgaria beating Germany 2-1 in the Quarter Final. Bulgaria's finest moment in International Football.

Roses Galore Outside a Yambol Apartment Block

Roses, Galore, Yambol, Apartment Block,

The grey bleak colours of an apartment block with mainly grey cars parked up need just this. Roses galore planted by residents just change the bleak trip to an absolute pleasure walking past.

A Locked Gate Blended in Graffiti in Yambol

Locked, Gate, Graffiti, Yambol,

This just caught my eye in terms of the two components blending well together. The locked gate and graffiti background just compliment each other. Both are ugly on their own but but create a little beauty together I feel.

Classic Bicycle Parked Up in Yambol

Classic Bicycle, Parked Up, Yambol,

Just love those classic bicycles that just keep appearing in Yambol. This one parked up with a secure lock on a bench. The saddle looks like a Brooks leather model probably going back half a century or more I'd guess.

The Drink Rakia Crew in Yambol

Drink, Rakia, Crew, Yambol, Drink Rakia Crew,

Couldn't help but notice that The Drink Rakia Crew have left their mark here in Yambol. Strange way to leave their mark. Will be watching out for more places where they have been from now on.

Polite Notice Entering an Apartment Block in Yambol

Polite Notice, Apartment Block, Yambol,

This polite notice was seen when entering one of Yambol's apartment blocks. It makes good sense as well. 'Please shut the door,' is the message if you were wondering. Love the wooden frame and decoration underlining the request.

Derelict Land of Former Buildings on the Southside of Yambol

Derelict Land, Buildings, Southside, Yambol,
This are in the South part of Yambol is quite depressive. It is derelict land which held former buildings of which are clearly evident with the foundations that remain. This would be a great place for developing residential property being so close to Yambol City Centre. However the population here is in decline so that will never happen.

South to North Over Yambol's River Tundzha By Bridge

South, North, Yambol, River Tundzha, Bridge,

A footbridge enabling pedestrian to travel from the South to the North side of Yambol's River Tundzha is seen here. I like the bare metal girders that poke out of the side as if the construction hadn't been finished. also the two parallel concrete strips going up the stairs very useful for bicycles, prams and buggies.

An Old 60 Kmph Speed Limit Sign on a Yambol Apartment Block

60 Kmph, Speed Limit, Sign, Yambol, Apartment Block,
Road Signs are quite often seen on the side of apartment blocks lining roads in Yambol. this one typifies what I mean. A 60 Kmph sign clearly instructing drivers to adhere to that regulation. On the road though other more modern road signs have overtaken with 50 Kmph limits on this particular stretch of road.

Yambol's River Tundzha Looking Healthy Right Now

Yambol, River Tundzha, Healthy,

Looking in a Northerly direction at Yambol's River Tundzha with Yambol City Centre ahead, the health of the River Tundzha looks healthy. After heavy rainfall during Winter and Early Spring it has been flushed out and new silt transported by melted snow from the Balkan Mountains leaving a fertile bed for nature to thrive.

Mysterious, Metal Cube, Yambol, Roadside,
This mysterious metal cube construction stands by the road side seemingly for a reason unknown. After asking around the mystery was solved. It was an old traffic watch tower manned by the traffic police, but the top half of the construction is no longer there.

Typical Yambol Bus Stop Timetable

Yambol, Bus Stop, Timetable,

This is a fine example of a Yambol Bus Stop with timetable information on it. What is typical si the fact that it leans to one side as if it was drunk. Maybe purposely done so the bus wing mirror is avoided when buses roll in. Somehow I doubt it though.

My Favourite Petrol Station in Yambol

Gas, Petrol, Diesel, Favourite, Petrol Station, Yambol, Kaufland,
 Situated almost under the shadow of Kaufland Supermarket, this Petrol Station is a favourite of mine and where I normally fill up my bottle gas in the Winter months. It may not be the cheapest, but it is the nearest and staff always friendly.
