Thousands of Bulgarian citizens flock to the town of Kirklareli every Wednesday for shopping

The city, which is the centre of the region of the same name, is located at the foot of Strandzha mountain. A motorway connects Kirklareli with the Dereköy/Malko Tarnovo border checkpoint on the border with Bulgaria.

According to the Ihlas News Agency, Kirklareli has become the new popular shopping destination for Bulgarian citizens, after the city of Edirne, which is located near the other Kapikule/Kapitan Andreevo border checkpoint.

Every Wednesday, by bus or private car, Bulgarian citizens arrive in the city. The huge open-air market, which is organized every Wednesday, offers goods of all kinds - food, fruit, vegetables, clothing, household goods, etc., the agency noted.

The local merchants are especially pleased.

"The neighboring Bulgarians now come to our city much more than before. They are mostly attracted by the market. In addition, they visit the restaurants, and this is very useful for us, the merchants. If it were not for the Bulgarians, it would be very difficult for us, not to mention impossible to survive. The purchasing value of the lev is very high, and it is much cheaper for them here. The possibility to visit Türkiye only with ID cards is also a great convenience," says Ilker Çaluk, a shop owner.
