Parks in Sandanski

The town of Sandanski as well as Bulgaria as a whole, are proud of the unique Town Park called since 1891 with the old name of the town - Sveti Vrach. Its territory is 344 decares. More than 100 tree species and more than 150 flower species grow here. One can see here old hollow plane-trees, slender cedars and sequoias, evergreen tui, branchy willows, pine-trees, pomegranates, fig trees, wild geranium, garden geranium, all sorts of roses, etc. The small stone slopes resemble the Alpine outlook of the white marble massif of Pirin rising to the east. Suspension bridges hang over the foamy and rapid Sandanska Bistritsa River. A number of alleys, wooden alcoves, playgrounds for children and other specific corners offer unique conditions for rest and entertainment. The verdure of the park surrounds the town stadium, the open-air theatre, the open swimming pool, an artificial lake with a bar, a lot of boats and water wheels, an original restaurant with separate niches in the shape of casks, etc. At the very gate of the park a unique ferro-concrete map of Northern Pirin was made and installed by Nikola Mironski, a well-known Bulgarian mountaineer. The Town Park has naturally merged in the bigger forest-park that surrounds the town as in a horseshoe, which people call the green necklace of Sandanski.
