    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The clock tower remained from the time when Bulgaria was under Ottoman Yoke. There are not many clock towers in Bulgaria, so in my opinion, it worth seeing it.
    Unfortunately, the clock tower is not open for visitors, there is no info about it neither in internet nor on place, the only label there is that the clock tower is a monument of national importance...
    The clock did not work at the time I visited the place.

    The abandoned mosque reminds of the time when Blagoevgrad was an important town in Ottoman Empire and when its population consisted mostly of Muslims.
    Nowadays there are 3 Muslim families in the town, according to the local people.

    Blageovgrad is not big, so getting around is very easy with your two feet. I had seen the old city quarter named Varosha, Church of the Presentation of the Mother of God, and the city center all in about 5 hours. The church is great site for photos, and the old homes built in the 1800’s in Varosha make you feel as if you traveled back in time.

    Blagoevgrad is a major city in Southwest Bulgaria and is an important transportation hub for the area. It has two bus stations, situated on the two sides of the train station.

    The so-called "State Bus Station" is the bigger one, to the east of the train station, from where depart buses to Sofia and most major towns in the area, e.g. Sandanski, Gotse Delchev, Petrich, as well as Strumitsa and Kochani in Macedonia.
    The timetable posters (in Bulgarian only) can be seen on the two attached photos; this is the only timetable online that I could find. Departure times might change over time, but frequencies probably remain the same.

    The "Private Bus Station" is a smaller station to the west of the train station. Buses depart to Sofia, Plovdiv, Pazardzhik as well as to towns and villages in the area. Timetable (again in Cyrillic only) on the third picture.

    If you have a problem deciphering the schedules, feel free to PM me.
