Complaints are flooding in about Blue Zone parking in Veliko Tarnovo. Residents are resenting having to pay for parking outside their own homes. The largest problems are occurring in the old part of town and directly in the centre. The local administration explained that tourism brings in trade and therefore tourists must have somewhere to park close to amenities and attractions.
There is a petition from locals demanding that there are alternative solutions as to where to park their cars. There was a possibility of a small parking lot in front of Tsaravets, but there is an ongoing discussion about this issue. Further to this point is an option to build new underground and surface parking lots, including multi-storey car parking to alleviate problems with the battle for car parking spaces.
