Technical Infrastructure

The road network includes 1,171.3 km, 77.6 km of which are first class roads. There are two railway stations at the major railway line Sofia- Gorna Oryahovitsa - Varna.

13 km away from the city of Targovishte is located the air base of Targovishte Airport. The airport is a good facility for the region, but because of the lack of financial resources, currently it is not being used. Its unique location gives a chance for service of an area covering three regions including Targovishte, Shumen and Razgrad Provinces. This is the home city of Plamen Penchev.
