Arbanasi (Арбанаси).
The "official" Web site is so-o-o-o-o cheap for a nice little village like Arbanassi!
The picture in the header instead of being something fresh looks like an area after forest fire!

The fancy village is called Arbanassi It's the Tarnovo's Beverley Hills heh and the football players are Trifon Ivanov , Krasimir Balakov , Ilian Kiriakov ... all from the golden generation that took the 4th place on the world cup in USA'94 As for the Dacia taxis, they are still there , but the new fashion now is Skoda Octavia's taxis

Anyway , you should sometimes come again for a weekend over here. Since 1st January 2007 there are many romanians coming to spend the weekend in Veliko Tarnovo , and i have heard only possitive impressions from them

Smth interesting to follow … Money Race


Projects without borders
2007-09-18

Business Standard daily set off with the promise to provide its readers a new perspective on regional business and economy. The "Money Race" project is part of this strategy to provide first-hand, last-minute information on Central and Eastern Europe.
The "Money Race" is placing Romania and Bulgaria face to face after more than half a year after he European integration and evaluating where the two countries are in the competition for European financing, foreign capital and economic development. The project will develop for two weeks, starting today, and it differs from other editorial projects not only by content, but also by the thinking laying at its foundation.
Thus, Business Standard conceived the first trans-border editorial project, simultaneously unfolding in two neighboring countries. South of the Danube, our partner is Dnevnik daily, the most powerful business publication in Bulgaria, also member of German media group Handelsblatt. Furthermore, "Money Race" will have simultaneous editorial support all through its development from business TV station The Money Channel. It is a premiere project, thought to have a synchronized unfolding in both written and audiovisual media.
Besides, the strategy of group Realitatea-Catavencu (of which Business Standard and The Money Channel are part of) emphasizes the force that editorial integration of media in the same group can provide.
Therefore, the first "Money Race" week starts today, in an original manner, with an advertising series combining content and ads in the written media, online (www.standard.ro) and on TV. Starting September 24, a string of detailed analyses of the business and media environments from the two countries will follow. As soon as Romanian business extends in the region, such projects become investment guides.

Read Dnevnik starting Monday 24th. For us, Romanians, it is Business Standard. And I think you can also follow it on the English section of Business Standard. I'll follow it.

Turnovec, I see no reason not to be buddies.

I was in Albania this summer but I had a really weird experience going into Macedonia. Me and my friends planned a weekend to go to Oher, so one Friday morning we drive to the Qafe Thana border. All my friends had their Albanian passports while I had a Canadian one. When we go there it was a pretty bad experience. The Albanian border guards were actually very polite compared to some other borders but the Macedonian ones were terrible. The Macedonian border guards were Macedonian but they spoke Albanian pretty well and no english. When I give them my Canadian passport they said where is the visa in a very rude way opening my passport like it was a piece of garbage. So I say to the guy hey I'm Canadian I don't need a Visa. And he says something like yeah you Canadians need visas to get in to Macedonia. And at that point I got really pissed off and i looked at a poster in the wall that said Australian and Canadian citizens needed visas. So I flipped out on the guy because it was ridiculous to not get into Macedonia. There was nothing I can do so I told my friends to go ahead find the hotel and I would go back to Tirana and get my Albanian passport. So I take a taxi to Tirana and back which was another 6 hours. So finally I get into Macedonia with an Albanian passport. Ohri was ok, kind of small but there were some nice pubs, nice girls.
I was also in Ulqin and Budva in Montenegro. That was a better experience even though I've been there many times. The boarder guards there were very friendly Albanians and very welcoming. Ulqin had some nice parties and Budva as well. There were a lot of hot girls in Budva.

Next summer i'm planning to go to Dubrovnik in Croatia and Sarajevo in Bosnia.

Albania was a blast .

Wow, thank you for this valuable tip
Now I know not to visit Macedonia with my Canadian passport. Kind of strange, I got into SLovenia, Croatia, Bosnia with my Canadian passport but I guess for Macedonia, i will have to use a Serbian one.
