Isperih - Pictures Of Bulgaria
The town of Isperih lies in Northeastern Bulgaria and represents an important crossroad between the towns of Razgrad and Silistra, Rousse and Dobrich, Shumen and Tutrakan. It is situated 40km to the northeast of Razgrad in the middle of the Danube Plain.

The town of Isperih emerged in 1545, inheriting a medieval settlement. Following the arrival of its first setter, Kemal, and his family, the settlement carried his name for a long time Kemallar. The grave of Kemal in the old cemetery of the town was long honoured by his successors.

In 1960, Isperih was declared a town. It carries the name of the founder of the first Bulgarian state, the Protobulgarian Asparuh, whose monument stands out in the centre of the town. The once small settlement has gradually grown into a modern town with big industrial plants, an agro-industrial complex, schools, kindergartens and healthcare establishments. It has a pleasant town centre with plenty of attractive cafes, and a lively Friday-morning market which attracts villagers from all over the region.

The biggest site in the region of Isperih is the Thracian tomb of Sveshtari that lies just 7km away from the town.
