Haskovo

Haskovo
The Essential
An oriental atmosphere permeates this Thracian town, through which the River Haskovska flows. Slender minarets, a colourful market, the late-14C Eži Džumaja mosque (džamija): nearly everything in this town points to the fact that Turkey is close by. During your visit, explore the pedestrian district, whose charming low houses are painted in pastel colours, and the church of St Michael the Archangel, whose fine interior boasts stucco work, an iconostasis and paintings.
