About Sliven

If you live in southeastern Bulgaria, you live in Sliven Province, which is named after the city of Sliven. It covers a total area of 3,544.1 km2. It is made up of four municipalities, with a total population of 204,887 in December 2009.

Sliven is the eighth-largest city in Bulgaria. It is also the administrative and industrial centre of the Sliven Province and municipality in Northern Thrace, which is in Bulgaria.

They were brave Haiduts who fought against the Ottoman Turks in the 19th century. Sliven is known as the "City of the 100 Voyvodi," a Voyvoda being a Haidut leader who led the fight against the Ottoman Turks.

Tourists and visitors can enjoy a wide range of things to do in Sinite Kamani and the national park it is part of, as well as the fresh air and mineral springs. People are looking into how to use the famous local wind (Bora) to make electricity.

Another thing to look at is the more than 1,000-year-old Stariyat Briast, a huge Smooth-leaved Elm in the middle of the city. It's on the coat of arms. The Turkish government used to hang Bulgarian revolutionaries on it when it was under Ottoman rule. Today, the city is doing a lot to help the tree stay alive, like making sure it has a strong base and checking on it often. It was named the Bulgarian tree of the year for 2013 because it was so beautiful. At an event in the European Parliament on March 19, 2014, the results of a poll were shown to the public. The Old Elm was named the European Tree of the Year for 2014 by the European Union. The city was also an important strategic point for the Bulgarian army. The headquarters of the Bulgarian Third Army were in the middle of the city, which was close to the Turkish border.

Sliven Peak on Livingston Island in Antarctica is named after him.

There is a Slavic suffix or ending at the end of the name: -en, which means "pour." When the city is called v in Greek, it's called slimiye in Turkey.
