The only cafe in Eastern Europe which is an exact replica of the cafe from the cult series "Friends" can be frequented in Bulgaria’s second-biggest city Plovdiv.

The owner of the place, Elin Nikolov, is a big fan of the series, so he decided to recreate the favorite meeting place of the TV characters. The success of the venture surprises him. The interest in the thematic place is constantly growing - not only Plovdiv residents come here but also many tourists.

After the loosening of the restrictive measures at the borders, tourists from neighbouring Turkey, Greece, Macedonia and Romania began to come to the café, etc. And guess which is the most frequently ordered drink? This is the favourite milkshake of the TV characters. But along with the typical American drinks, customers can also enjoy traditional Bulgarian rakiya.
