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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
A lovely sight awaited me in Yambol City Centre with newly planted miniature Rose Bushes in a ringed formation. This place is regularly changed with floral depending on the season,

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.

Situated just on the outskirt of the Yambol City Centre you will find the Goddess Diana's Hunting Dog ready for action. No sign of Diana to be seen though.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In case you didn't know Yambol has a fine yoghurt made from bull milk. These statutes remain a sitting by the River Tundzha as a reminder of this. Having seen then originally over 10 years ago, they haven't aged at all.

Looking in a Southerly direction the lush greenery on the banks of Yambol's River Tundzha are at its peak right now. A perfect haven for uninterfered wildlife with the nature of the terrain being swampland no one ventures there.

Poppies set the scene on the bank of the River Tundzha in Yambol, You just can't miss their distinctive red colour amidst the greenery and greyness of the grass and concrete building respectively.

An unlikely pair situated together next to the southern ring road in Yambol, But Diana Hotel Business Centre and the Church are the really both businesses at the end of the day.

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.

Fancying a coffee I decided to go to a place I went to many years ago, When I got there this is what I found, a concrete shell. This used to be a Trendy Cafe with a decent menu and Music videos being played, obviously in a by gone age now.

I couldn't help noticing that this wall of a kine is made up of many different elements. Brick, concrete, wood and metal to name a few. Looks like the gate will fall off when opened.
