          Orasul isi pastreaza aerul medieval dar multe cladiri stau sa se darame. Strazi curate, oameni amabili, magazine frumoase si pravalii interesante. Peste tot sunt arborate drapelul national si cel al orasului.

          Un oraș care trebuie vizitat. Turiștii iubitori de istorie pot vizita cetatea-capitală a imperiului româno-bulgar (imperiul asanid), cu tot ce implică aceasta. Se poate vizita Muzeul de Artă, situat in fostul sediu al Miliției, pe timpul perioadei socialiste. De asemenea, iubitorii de suveniruri au la dispoziție o stradă întreagă cu magazine specializate (Samovodska).

          In august, orasul nu este foarte aglomerat, ceea ce a fost un plus. Sunt multe terase si restaurante deschise, obiectuivele turistice sunt ingrijite si semnalizate. Noua ne-a placut.

          Punctul principal l-a constituit vizitarea cetății. 6 leva intrarea de persoană ni s-a părut un preț acceptabil, mai ales la sfârșit după toate câte văzusem. Vizitarea durează cam 2 ore, iar pe parcurs ai ocazia să faci şi mișcare, să vezi orașul de sus, din diferite perspective, să întâlnești zidurile ce alcătuiesc vechi încăperi, locuri cu rezonanță istorică, dar şi mici teatre de păpuși ambulante, terase pentru suc sau cafea în drumul către vârful cetății, cărări ce se cer explorate... În vârf tronează o biserică în care, când intri afli răcoarea pe care o simți ca pe o binecuvântare, după efortul depus într-o zi şi așa caniculară. Am comparat cetatea cu Sighișoara noastră, sau cu cetatea de scaun de la Suceava.

          Ceace am vazut in oras si in imprejurimi, mi-a placut si a corespuns asteptarilor mele. Ce nu mi-a placut este curatenia stazilor si a parcurilor. Nepasarea pune o amprenta urata.
