Thank you!
The road through "The Republic pass"(with red on teh map below) was opened during the winter, but now they closed it in order to finish the remaining work. The last announced end date is the end of July. Hopefully they will finish at last the reconstruction of that road, cause it is the best connection between Northern and Southern Bulgaria.

Now the alternative roads are through the Shipka pass(left on the map) -> Veliko Tarnovo-Gabrovo-Shipka peak-Kazanluk and through the Vratnik pass(right on the map) -> Veliko Tarnovo-Elena-Sliven.

The first option goes through a very difficult terrain - lots of curves etc. and i have read that ppart of it is under rehabilitation, with the traffic passing in only one of the lanes. Also it is forbidden for TIR trucks to pass through it right now. The 2nd one goes through a tough terrain too, but i think it is slightly easier than the one at Shipka. The bad thing there is that all the lorries traffic from Turkey to Romania and Western Europe now goes through that road.

Make your choice on your own!

Thanks a lot man! An exemplary answear! I will probably go trough Gabrovo.

But the road from Veliko Tarnovo to Nova Zagora can be accesed "unofficial"? I spoke with some guys and they told (i don't know if it is true) that you can pass by there with "unoficial" fee!

Once again thank you for your detailed answer!

Actually just for the record - the repavement of Yavorov(the boulevard going under the bridge) was done before Boiko took the mayor's office of Sofia ... and is of better quality of the repavement of Tsarigradsko shose, done later , during Boiko's administration.

the trakya motorway looks very good, especially the bridge, except that the aspahlt on the emergency lanes doesnīt have the same color then the driving lanes asphalt which is very bad.
