Car-free day Car-free day

Vidin carries out a Car-Free Day 2008 and closes off one or more streets to traffic, and opens it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.

The zone is situated in the central part of the city leading to the municipal building. It is not a very long but relatively busy street and one that if closed would have the desired public impact and visualisation.
