A Little Gem Hidden in the Heart of Pazardzhik

There is one particular spot in Pazardzhik(a city very close to Plovdiv), that I love. It is called Park “Svoboda”( which means – freedom), or as people call it – Ostrova (The Island). It is a large and green park, with perfectly cut grass and colourfull flowers. I am in love with the roses that are cultivated there. If you are looking for a place to sit and relax – lots of benches are waiting for you. In fact, the longest bench in the world, made by wood, is here. It is 1 015 meters long and about 2 -020 people can sit on it.

A part of that, there is something like a little zoo in the park. Here you can find a gorgeous tiger, funny llama, timid fox and majestic eagle. Also: cute little ponies, indescribably beautiful peacocks, other pretty birds, lemurs and many more. The lemurs are especially friendly and adorably cute.

There are lots of attractions for kids and grown ups. You can take a “ride” on Flintstones car(which we did!) or “run” from the dinosaurs. Other sculptures might take your attention as well. I personally love the big chair. It is higher then me, but I climb on it, because…well, it is a fun thing to do.

I can talk a lot about the park, but I think my pictures will convince you, that it is worth visiting. 🙂
