    >The friendly Children of Gabrovo
    After we visit the Etar Museum which was 8 km away from Gabrovo, we strolled around in the middle of the town which is only few meters away from our “guesthouse Koliovata Kashta”. I took videos and made lots of pictures. The Pedestrian Zone is clean and has very attractive beautiful architectural buildings including two churches within this zone. There is children´s playground, and numbers of busy open-air bistros and many shopping fashion stores, restaurants adorned the pedestrian center. When I took pictures of the beautiful rose garden in the park, a group of very excited and joyful children approached me and asked me about the time in Bulgarian language. I was surprised about how socialized these young children to foreign people like me. They were relaxed not shy either afraid to approach strangers. What I experienced here may not happen to all tourists but I was very lucky and happy about their joy and friendliness. In return, after I asked their permission that I wanted to have a photo souvenir with them and that I post them in the World Wide Web, I took this opportunity and document this with my VT Flag LOGO! They giggled with joy because they mean they will become popular then to be seen all over the world ;-) For me, a very unforgettable experience in Gabrovo!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the most impressive Bulgarian city. Because of its central geographical location many land transportation network have access from Gabrovo Province to many municipalities in all Bulgarian regions. On the other hand, it is considered to be one of the most ecologically clean areas of the country because of its great forest vegetation that produces clean mountain air, a large number of flora and fauna and impressive ethnographical and historical sites. These rich biodiversity of rare and protected species of flora and fauna became a magnet for lovers of nature and environmentalist or eco-freaks tourists nationwide. Wildlife reserves and some endangered species can be found in the forests of Gabrovo region. This is one of the reason why it won after a nationwide survey as the “Greenest City” and the “Best Living Town” of Bulgaria.
