Birdwatching in Gabrovo!

Post updated

With the help of Vladimir Mladenov - responsible for nature protection activities, and Dimo ​​Shehlarski - a volunteer in BDZP, we managed to see nearly 30 species of birds along the rivers Yantra and Sinkevitsa. The stork turned out to be the biggest poser and didn't hide at all, unlike the rest of the birds. During the observation, we also learned a curious fact about swifts: Bulgaria has the largest colony of them in Europe, because they prefer to nest in the cracks of panel blocks.

Special thanks to the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds for the experience, to the Central Balkan National Park and the Bulgarka Nature Park for providing the means of observation, as well as to the bird lovers from Bulgaria and Norway who joined the tour.


When: July 22, 2022, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Meeting point: In front of the Museum of Humor and Satire

Free entry

Join us for a city tour for birdwatching in the central part of Gabrovo with an expert from Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds (along the river)  BSPB.

We will observe birds, some of which we may not even suspect, that inhabit the center of Gabrovo. It is necessary to use binoculars if possible. We start at 11:00 a.m. with a meeting point in front of the Museum of Humor and Satire. Then, we will head to the central part of the city - where the Sinkevitsa River flows into the Yantra River. The observation itself will last about 2 hours.

The event is part of the accompanying program of the 25th Biennale of Humor and Satire in Art with the theme Economy of Means
