With its impressive Revival Period landscape, picturesque nature and rich history, Lovech is a marvellous destination year round. In May, however, visiting the town is a must. Mayor Kornelia Marinova shares why.

Why should we visit Lovech in May?

In May, nature is fully awakened from winter and brings us joy with its variety of plants in full bloom. Lovech is lucky with its numerous lilacs, particularly in Stratesh Park, that attract with their gentle colours and inimitable aroma.

The month is rich in festivities and surprises. We are expecting the Lilac Musical Evenings, on 9-11 May. The city's festival follows on 11 May. Then comes 24 May, and we are proud that here for the first time was performed Walk On, Reborn People, the hymn of Bulgarian education, with music by Panayot Pipkov. All of these festivities will be accompanied by many rich cultural programmes. In the days around the city's festival there will be concerts of Hilda Kazasyan, Duet Riton and Lubo Kirov, plus guest performances by the Plovdiv and Stara Zagora opera houses. There will be a rich sports programme as well.

How do you plan to celebrate Lovech's festival this year?

With plenty of quality events in high spirit and spring mood. After two hard years, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and other unfortunate events, I feel in debt to our fellow citizens and guests of Lovech. People's desire to get together and have fun is palpable. Our renovated city additionally boosts this desire. Probably this is why the new skating facility is constantly full with children.

Which are the five places and experiences that a guest of the city should definitely visit or try?

The places exceed five. The museums, monuments and parks alone count over ten. Here is Bulgaria's largest zoo after the one in Sofia. Тhe water amusement site Old City Bath House Deli Hamam is unique. Have a stroll along the Bash Bunar alley along the Osam river. There are many big and small caves in the steep karst banks of the Osam.

Stratesh Park

If you are visiting Lovech, you will inevitably cross the famed Covered Bridge built by Master Kolyu Ficheto, full of small artisanal workshops. We have sites connected to revolutionary Vasil Levski, composers Panayot and Lyubomir Pipkov, and Bulgaria's first astronaut, Georgi Ivanov. As an experience, I would recommend the light show at the medieval fortress or the hit show Place Hunters starring Nikolay Urumov, at Lovech Theatre. Do see as well the new cathedral Ss Cyril and Methodius with its beautiful murals. You can also visit Prof Teofan Sokerov Art Gallery and its detached exhibitions with art by Nikola Manev, Dimitar 'Nero' Kazakov and Mircho Mirchev.

And when you feel pleasantly tired, you can visit the picturesque restaurants and traditional taverns famed for their delicious food.

Май в Ловеч – идеална комбинация

Кметът Корнелия Маринова: Месецът е богат на празници и изненади

С впечатляващия си възрожденски пейзаж, живописна природа и богата история, Ловеч е дестинация, която е прекрасна през цялата година. През май обаче градът задължително трябва да бъде посетен. Кметът

Корнелия Маринова разказва защо.

Защо да посетим Ловеч през месец май?

През май природата е напълно събудена и ни радва с разнообразието си от цъфнали растения. Ловеч има щастието да се радва на многото люляци, особено в парка „Стратеш“, които привличат с нежните си цветове и неповторимия аромат.

Месецът е богат на празници и изненади. Очакваме „Люляковите музикални вечери” (9-11 май). Следва Празникът на града – 11 май. След това е 24 май, а ние се гордеем, че тук за първи път е прозвучал химнът на българската просвета „Върви, народе възродени“ с музика на Панайот Пипков. Всички тези празници са съпътствани от много богати програми. В дните около Празника на града са концертите на Хилда Казасян, дует „Ритон“ и Любо Киров, гостуват опери от Пловдив и Стара Загора. Богата е и спортната програма.

Как планирате да се отбележи празника на града тази година?

С много съдържателни събития, с висок емоционален градус и пролетно настроение. След двете тежки години поради коронавируса и други неблагоприятни процеси, се чувствам в дълг към нашите съграждани и гости. Усеща се едно желание на хората да са заедно, да се веселят. Обновеният ни град допълнително подсилва това желание. Вероятно затова новата скейт площадка е постоянно пълна с деца.

Кои са петте места и преживявания, които един гост на града непременно трябва да посети или опита?

Местата са много повече от пет. Само музеите, паметниците и парковете са над десет. Тук е най-големият зоопарк в страната след столичния. Уникален е водният атракцион Стара градска баня „Дели Хамам“. Разходете се по алеята „Баш Бунар“ покрай река Осъм. В скалистите карстови брегове на Осъм има много малки и големи пещери.

Катедрала „Св. св. Кирил и Методий“

Ако гостувате в Ловеч, непременно ще прекосите Покрития мост на Кольо Фичето, пълен с малки занаятчийски работилници. Имаме места, свързани с Васил Левски, с композиторите Панайот и Любомир Пипкови, с първия наш космонавт Георги Иванов. Като преживяване бих препоръчала светлинния спектакъл на Средновековната крепост. Или пък хитовия театрален спектакъл „Службогонци“ с Николай Урумов в Ловешкия театър. Вижте новия катедрален храм „Св. св. Кирил и Методий“ с красивите стенописи. Други могат да посетят Художествената галерия „Проф. Теофан Сокеров“ и нейните изнесени експозиции на Никола Манев, Димитър Казаков-Нерон и Мирчо Мирчев.

А след приятната умора може да посетите и живописните ресторанти и механи, които са прочути с предлаганите вкусотии.
