Kırklareli is a small town in the Thracian region. It was founded in Roman times and was mainly important in Byzantine times. In 1361 it became Ottoman, when Sultan Murat I conquered it. Its old name was Kırık Kilese (devasted churches). Though: check the comment below for another possible name.

I went there, after an earlier visit in decent weather, on a foggy day in December 2006. The inhabitants will probably be angry with me for, once again, showing too many old houses and no modern buildings. Indeed I liked the town, but for what to many people will be the wrong reasons: the city was, for as far as I could see, to a large extent free of modernity, but pleasantly old fashioned. I am certain it will change but hope some of that nice atmosphere will linger. I missed taking a picture of one aspect: there is a “dere” (small stream) running through part of the town, which has been covered by what looks like a street bus is not quite a proper street. It is curious, and I should have taken its picture. One more think: I went on a Sunday, the town would be more lively on a weekday.
