Pleven is highly regarded as one of the best medical institutions among the six medical universities in Bulgaria for medicine.

Pleven is the seventh most populous city in Bulgaria with 106,000 inhabitants. Bulgaria is regarded as a strong industrial economy and Pleven is one of the major economic centres of the Bulgarian Northwest and the Central North. The events that transpired at Pleven in the latter 18th Century were decisive in the liberation of Bulgaria from the Ottoman Empire. The majority of the monuments you will encounter reflect the key role that Pleven had during this tumultuous time with both Russians and Romanians who lost their lives at the Siege of Plevna.

The modern and fast-paced economic development of the city is tantamount to its strategic location. It is situated in the heart of the Danube plain and just two hours from the capital Sofia. Boasting cultural, leisure and sporting facilities, Pleven is one city you will never be tired of. Whether you’re looking for music, drama, opera, dance or the dozens of galleries and cinemas located around, you can’t ask for more!
