Suhindol - Pictures Of Bulgaria
The town of Suhindol is situated at the distance of 14 km south-west of Pavlikeni. It is a big vine-growing and wine-producing centre. The prominent Hungarian traveller, scientist and artist Felix Kanits visited the old settlement in 1872.

It was as early as in 1897 when its population used vine sprinklers and grapevines imported from France. In the eve of the Liberation as well as after it Suhindol was a big cultural centre for its time. The community centre dates back to 1870 and the clock tower dates back to 1895. Newspapers were published here, too. In 1908 the first independent vine-growing and wine-producing co-operative company in Bulgaria was established here - Gumza. Nowadays there is a great demand for the red Suhindol Gumsa on the international market, too and it is one of the best-sold Bulgarian wines. There is a museum and an art gallery in the town. The picture Suhindol Maiden painted by Felix Kanits in 1872 is preserved and exhibited in the art gallery.

There is a regular bus connection between Pavlikeni and Suhindol.
