Bulgaria – Svilengrad, 10 – 11 July 2018

Kragujevac to Svilengrad another stop on the way to Turkey, this time for a couple of days to rest my weary bones hahaha. It will also allow me to get to the Turkish border early which is always a good idea.  Crossing the border took about 45 minutes, 5 for the Serbian side and 40 for the Bulgarian. When my turn came they stamped my passport, looked at my Bike registration and waved me on, though some cars were being inspected which was what caused the delay. They should have a separate inspection area.

Svilengrad is about a 20 minute drive from the Turkish border. Gambling is illegal in Turkey so the Turks come here to play, casinos everywhere, big and small. There is also an old bridge built in 1529 during the Ottoman era.
