Iskra Community Centre (between the Police Station and the Green Market) is to host a cinema again after 25 years, Yantra Dnes announced last week. The old hall will be renovated and 3 smaller contemporary halls will be formed. The reconstruction process will take at least 6-7 months meaning the new theatre (which will not be Arena) will start operating in October at the earliest. The new cinema operator is Sofia based and has movie theatres in Sofia, Plovdiv and Targovishte.
The 8th edition of Trabant Motor Show will take place on March, 18th in Veliko Tarnovo. The local Trabant Fan Club is expecting more than 80 East German cars from Bulgaria, Romania, Germany and Russia to participate in the expo.
The trabis, as some call them endearingly, will be on display at the parking lot between the Army Club Building and Marno Pole Park from 10 am till 11 am. From 11 till 12 am they will be in front of the Municipality. At 12 they will parade along the streets of Veliko Tarnovo on their way towards the parking in front of Praktiker. There Trabant owners will show off their expert driving skills. There will be prizes for best preserved vehicle and also for best car tuning.
This famous car was produced in the German Democratic Republic between the years 1957-1991 at a factory in Zwickau, during which period more than 3 million vehicles have been constructed.

I know that you are probably fed up with info about GO Airport but we do our best to keep the dream alive 🙂 So now to the actual news.
The runway at Gorna Oryahovitsa Airport is to be extended enabling flights by larger planes, it was announced yesterday by GO Mayor Dobromir Dobrev. The concessioner also wants the Municipality to establish an easement of 6000 sqm pasture lands. The request is to be discussed at the next meeting of the Municipality Council. The current length of the runway is 2450 m. Geological probes are presently underway and after their completion the exact extension of the airstrip will become known.
Not far from Veliko Tarnovo is the village of Ovcha Mogila boasting with its Mineral Water Hospital. It has been partly renovated and now features new facilities for balneotherapy, physiotherapy and a canteen seating 120 people and is operating all year round. The major remedial factor in the sanatorium is the mineral water of course. Over 80% of the mineral water sources in Bulgaria are lightly mineralized (their mineral content is less than 1 g per litre). The mineral level of the water in Ovcha Mogila is 4 g per litre placing her in the moderately mineralized category thus rendering it as ‘strong water’ suitable for the treatment of a number of ailments. It is also hyper thermal – the water issued from the springs is 45 degrees.
The hot mineral water is beneficial for the following conditions – arthrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, neuralgia, neuritis, radiculitis, polyneuritis, polyneuropathy, diabetes and gout.
