This is one of Bulgaria's most popular seaside resorts at a time when... very few visitors come. The 6th of December, in Orthodox hagiography the feast day of St Nicholas – revered also as the protector of seamen, is celebrated here with particular enthusiasm as the majority of those locals not involved with summertime tourism are actually fishermen and live on the sea.

The celebrations involve a huge party at the harbour, with free fish soup and plenty of drinks, some blessing of ships by the local priest, and in good weather a free cruise around the islands in the bay.

Zdravina Peneva, from Varna, guessed correctly that the site we have shown you in the picture of Where in Bulgaria Are You? in Vagabond 95-96, is the 1,300 Years Bulgaria Monument in Shumen. Zdravina wins the poetic guide Wall-to-Wall, Poetry of Europe. Zdravina works for the Ministry of Interior. She reads Vagabond because she is curious of what new and interesting from the country will be covered in each issue. She is also happy that some of the articles are translated into the Bulgarian. In Bulgaria, Zdravina recommends the taste of the Bulgarian hospitality, the wonderful food, and beautiful places like Plovdiv and Veliko Tarnovo. What Zdravina doesn't like in Bulgaria are the current pessimistic atmosphere, the reluctancy of many Bulgarians to love their country, and the emigration of young and clever people.
