    The railway station.

    The bus and railway stations are situated across each other south of the city centre. Local buses 4 and 6 will take you into the centre, otherwise it wouldn't take more than 5 - 10 min to walk.

    The Sofia- Kazanluk bus schedule -in English - is here:
    It is a bit outdated (2008) so you will have to double check the schedule.

    The bus station from Plovdiv to Kazanluk is the North station, Sever Avtogar

    There are 2 in the morning at 0700 and at 1330. More later in the day. The trip takes ~2 hours.

    Be aware - the bus station in Kazanluk does not appear to be a large city station. No signs!
    It looks like a small town on a busy thoroughfare (highway).
    I wouldn't have recognized it if a very nice lady didn't tell me that this was the Kazanluk station!

    The driver stopped off about 1/2 way into the trip to buy a bunch of tomato plants!!
    Seems he is a local man - talked to some of the passengers quite familiarly.

    April 2008

    Here is a picture of a local double bus from Kazanlak. Prices vary from destination to destination. It's common also for people to give away their tickets to the next person.

    Like on a train, a person comes from end of the bus to the other asking for tickets. You can enter the bus from either the front or rear.
    These buses only travel within the same town.

    There are other buses that travel to different towns all over the country

    Tickets can be purchased at the bus station, airport and also on the bus.

    Sofia-Kazanluk-Sofia by Train

    Bulgaria, Kazanluk, Train Station

    I took the train at 7:50 from one of the trainstations in Sofia - Poduyane - which is near my flat. The train was late for 5-10 minutes already and when it finally arrived in Kazanluk it was late for 40 minutes.
    There are several train 'categories' of trains in Bulgaria - the fastest one is 'express', the next one is 'fast train'(burz vlak) and the last very slow train is called 'travellers train'(putnicheski vlak). The one I was travelled with was from the second category. The trains from this category are usually the old machines used years ago as express trains. Nowadays the cabines of the express trains look similar to the ones in Germany, where the waggon is not separated into several cabines. In the last years I travelled only with the express trains so it was an interesting experience to travel in a fast train again, where there are 8-10 cabines in a waggon. On the way to Kazanluk there was a group of mountain hikers in the cabine so I was listening to their conversation (and trying not to laugh to their jokes, at times without success). And I was sorry that I don't have such friends who like going in the mountain to join them.
    On the back way the train was late for about an hour.
