Welcome to the Turkish fortress “Medzhidi Tabia”!
The Turkish fort “Abdul Medzhidi” or the so-called Medzhidi Tabia fortress is located south of Silistra and is the most preserved of the six points of the Turkish fortification system, which played an important role in the Crimean and Russian-Turkish wars. It was built because of the need to further strengthen the Danubian towns when the river became a natural border of the Ottoman Empire.
The fortress was built in the period 1841-1853 with the free labour of 300 forcefully engaged Bulgarians. The majority of the master builders were from Dryanovo, and the stone-cutters were from the region of Silistra.
Medzhidi Tabia is the only fully preserved fortress in its interior and exterior from the Ottoman era in Bulgaria.
