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.
Veliko Tarnovo now has a new tourist map which is available for free – you can grab your copy from the Tourist Information Centre at 5 Hristo Botev Str as well as from the sites which are advertised on it. The first circulation is of 10,000 pieces. The map itself measures 48×35 cm and is bilingual (Bulgarian and English). The most prominent historical and cultural sites are marked on it as well as information about transport, places to dine and entertain and various types of services provided in the town.
The new Palace Cinema in Mall Veliko Tarnovo will open to the public on Friday (16th December). There is still no official website, but on Thursday a telephone number will be released for reservations. The new theatre will meet its audience with 3 completely refurbished halls. All of them are kitted out with the latest state-of-the-art technology, including silver screens, which allows guests to enjoy blockbusters on the venue’s exclusive to Bulgaria 3D system Volfoni for an immersive experience. Two of the halls are equipped with unique rocking chairs and the 50-seats VIP hall promises luxury setting that will make you wish the movie never ends. The first flicks which you can see are Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Collateral Beauty and Inferno, and the animation movies Sheep & Wolves and Moana.

The weather forecast shows that Saturday and Sunday are set to be warm and dry with plenty of sunshine so if you still haven’t visited the Christmas Market in Marno Pole Park, Veliko Tarnovo, the weekend seems as the right time to do it. The Market is open every day from 10 am till 8 pm and will continue up to December, 31st. This year the Greek Kontosouvli Chalet is in the spotlight – it attracts everyone with sizzling sounds and delicious aroma coming from the grill. Kontosouvli is actually a big kebab traditionally slow roasted on a spit turning over charcoal pit. The treat is priced at 6 leva per kg. The adjacent chalet is selling mulled wine and wormwood wine at 2 leva per 200 ml. At the Christmas market you will also find Kazanlak Donuts, kattami (stuffed flatbreads) and Turkish delight. A variety of souvenirs, everyday items and toys are also available. A mini fairground with Ferry Wheel and Santa Post Office will keep the little ones entertained.
