Varna has 300,000 inhabitants and two of the virtues of the new era are raised into the haven ::)

Then the entire peninsula of the old town of Nessebar revealed us.

On the passageway toward the old town a windmill meets us.

This,rather simple construction,from 17th century,was turned into a symbol used by architects at the buildings of the new town.

Generally speaking a windmill asks open spaces.Here the architects put this like windmill ornament in a closed corner of the building.The answer could be"to open that closed space". For my taste the result was a failure.

Whom does the statue represent?  Being from 2006 the easiest way to find the answer seemed to be asking the author,Stavri Kalinov.He said this is a new Noah,with a dove in his left hand,looking for a new land.But other people think this is Saint Nicholas,the protector of the sailors,because he has a cross in his right hand and all know that Noah was before Jesus and the cross,as a symbol,was unknown for him.

This peninsula is around 900 feet long and 400 feet wide.It has two main roads with many narrow streets between them.Waiting for the future tourists,the boats will spent the winter on the ground.

The ruins of the walls of the ancient town of Messembria -now Nessebar- are still standing and the tourists could see them just the entrance.

For a short time I'm returning to the Noah statue because I saw,in a corner of a large central boulevard of Bucharest-Romania,in a small and cramped green space a kind of Noah and His boat.Having at its stern   a cinema,at its starboard a bookshop and at its bow another building,this Kind of Noah looks for the land in the flats of his successors.

Although this Noah seems to be,for me,a bad joke,in a city with very few statues,I post processed it in the same way as Noah from Nessebar to emphasize its value,I hope.
