Gorna Oryakhovitsa Things to Do

    The last time I picked up a train here I'd purposefully arrived in Gorna about an hour early, intending to have a wander around the the town. However the temperature was sub-zero and the town's footpaths slipperarily icy and I made do with hanging at the railway station.

    This little cafe/bar pictured proved ideal for said purposes - beer was cheap (about 1.50 leva) and both the service and environment warm and friendly. Not only that but of course there were ashtrays on the tables!

    Gorna Oryahovitsa's railway station has several competing snack kiosks where you can pick up cheap nibbles and drinks for your journey and because they are competing prices are kept down.

    Service, at the one I used, was swift and friendly and I was given the option as to whether I wanted my edible bits warmed up.

    Favorite Dish: If I remember correctly I had a sllice of well-topped pizza and a doughy-type banitza. Along with a 2 litre bottle of beer I think the bill was just over 4 leva - bargain!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    you dont find any tourist here, actually you dont find any tourist in this town. cos ok theres not much to see, just if you want to see how bularians live in the interior cities ok. very interesting to see that.
    to go to this market just ask for the bus station and go right up the street.
