Getting there & away

From the bus station (805 566; ul Stefan Karadzha) three daily buses serve Varna, Sliven, Burgas, Stara Zagora (8 lv, two hours) and Plovdiv (10 lv, three hours). Five or six daily buses go to Pleven, and there’s a service to Sofia (9 lv, 3½ hours, daily). Buses also leave hourly for Tryavna and Veliko Târnovo (via the Dryanovo Monastery; 4 lv, one hour), crossing the mountains at Shipka Pass for Shipka village (2 lv, 50 minutes) and Kazanlâk (5 lv, 1½ hours).

The train station (827 127; pl Garov) has trains on a spur track of the Veliko TârnovoKazanlâk line. Services to both towns are ­infrequent, however.
