VIDIN – The Medieval Fortresses ”Baba Vida”
Vidin is the westernmost important Bulgarian Danube Port and is situated on one of the southernmost sections of the river. A Ferryboat complex linking Vidin with Calafat on the opposite side of the river, is located 2 km from the town. The complex is to be replaced by the Calafat-Vidin Bridge.
Vidin boasts two well-preserved Medieval Fortresses - Baba Vida and Kaleto, as well as many old Orthodox churches such as St Pantaleimon, St Petka (both 17th century), and St Greatmartyr Demetrius (19th century), a Jewish synagogue (1894), a mosque and a library of Osman Pazvantoğlu, the late 18th century Turkish ruler of northwestern Bulgaria, the cruciform barracks of 1798, and a number of old Renaissance buildings.
Grazie per farmi scoprire tanti aspetti interessanti della Bulgaria !
Grazie a te Marco! C'e ne ancora tanto da scoprire, anche per me.. ;-)

Чудесна перспектива. (От Сливен във Видин, не са ти основателни твърденията, че аз много миткам...)
Аaa, не съм казала, че не обичам да миткам, напротив, даже много.. ;-)))
