Belogradchik and Vidin

Parks and rocks

View Eastern Europe on Deb Godley's travel map.

Although we were advised Vidin is considered the poorest place in Europe, we did not find the poverty as evident as we expected, in comparison to poor areas in Mexico and Central America, for example. We walked along the shore of the Danube, in a lush park and into a portion of the town.


Remnants of Easter.

Steve should have brought a skateboard.

The ruins of what was obviously a beautiful synagogue

The only disturbing thing in Vidin was the number of missing women posters tacked onto every other pole

After lunch (the food quality has been top notch), we ventured further afield to Belagradchik, where we climbed amongst the stratified rocks, which run for 25km. We visited the site near an old fortress, where 150 or so stairs have been added or cut into the rock.

And a couple of views of our ship - the pool floor raises and the space becomes a theatre in he evenings. First it was The Magnificent Seven, and tonight it will be Victoria and Abdul.
