Living in Pleven

Pleven is the seventh largest city in Bulgaria, with a population of 106,000 and also the capital of Pleven Province. It is one of the most important economic and cultural centers in the north of Bulgaria. The city has many museums depicting its rich history and indeed is still known as "The Town of Museums".
