Tolbukhin. Bulgaria. 1960

Tolbukhin / Dobrich. Bulgaria.

* Dobrich is situated almost in the center of the Dobrudzha plateau, 50km to the north of Varna. The town bore the name of the Marshal of the Soviet Union Fyodor Tolbukhin for several decades during the Communist rule. On 19 September 1990, a presidential decree restored the city's old name of Dobrich.
