GP: Pedestrianised intersection/ network - Pazardzhik - Bulgaria PDF Print E-mail
Pazardzhik (Pazardjik) is a medium sized town (80,000 inhabitants) in central Bulgaria, not very far away from Plovdiv, the country's second largest city.

As with most Bulgarian cities, Pazardzhik has developed a significant pedestrian centre, in which several central squares typify the European café society and pedestrian culture. In Bulgaria the café culture is particularly prominent, with many downtown squares easily providing up to a half dozen cafés, with ample outside seating.

Pazardzhik has a level of pedestrian streets (or carfree areas) even above the relatively high Bulgarian standard. There are several longer pedestrian streets, and at one point there is even an intersection where five different pedestrian streets converge. A few of these do not continue for very long, but most do, or are connected to the rest of the pedestrian areas of the city, and thus could be said to form the pedestrian network of the city.

Pazardzhik was visited during a Sofia-Istanbul bike tour by Justin Hyatt, Hungarian Young Greens (HYG's), June 2006. The tour passed through eight Bulgarian municipalities, and provided Justin with the opportunity to meet Municipal leaders and distribute copies of HYG's 'Sustainable Mobility Guide for Municipal Leaders'.

The Bulgarian publisher and distributor of the 'Sustainable Mobility Guide for Municipal Leaders' is Ecological Association 'Za Zemiata', who translated the guide into Bulgarian and helped Mr. Hyatt by distributing it to the municipalities in Sofia, Blagoevgrad, Razlog, Yakoruda, Pazardjik, Plovdiv, Stara Zagora and Burgas.
