As we all know there is a castle called Tsarska Bistritza.

I suppose this name has a meaning is it true? Tsarska looks like a sort of adjective, am I right?

While what does bistritza mean?




Tsarska - Royal
Bistritsa - Clean or Pure

This is a really cool model of the Royal Palace.
This and other models of a Bulgarian historical buildings are currently on display at the National Assembly in Sofia.

I hope to be back in Sofia this coming May. It would be great if the models were still on display.
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

Vrana is to the east of Sofia, at the edge of the city.

On http://members.tripod.com/~datacom_bg/asde_engl_home/e_eco_zone_map.html you can find a map where it is.

If you try look in Google Earth where it is on base of this map it is (I think): 42 38 23.06 N 23 25 57.39 E

I think you are right. However, when I go to this location the image is blurred. I am in the United States and maybe that’s why there is no clear image. Can anyone from Europe try to see if they can find better quality?
