SVILENGRAD - Bulgaria » The town of Svilengrad is situated in southeast Bulgaria, on the banks of Maritsa river, between Rhodope and Sakar mountains. It is 67 km southeast of Haskovo, 150 km southeast of Plovdiv, 300 km southeast of Sofia, 2 km north of the border with Greece and 14 km northwest of the border with Turkey. The international roads and railway line from Europe to the Middle East and Asia cross through Svilengrad, making it one of the most significant border towns in Bulgaria. There are a number of interesting places to visit preserved from the rich historical heritage of Svilengrad – the Holy Trinity Church (1834) and the St Demetrius Church (1898), having survived the devastation of the town during the Balkan War of 1912, Hristo Popmarkov School, the Russian monument, the Roman stronghold ruins on the Hisarlaka hill, and the magnificent bridge over Maritsa river which puzzles with its scale of 21 arches and 295-metres length and is one of the best known architectural structures on the Balkans.
