Reasons for deletion[edit]

I think in English Wikipedia only the English and native name should be in as we have wikipedias in many languages. You can see information of the city in other languages in the language box or create a new article.--Valkov 05:27, 28 March 2006 (UTC) Hello, There is a big mistake in the location of SIlistra. When i open the page in Wikipedia or check in myself in facebook it's come out as a location - Silistra, Razgrad. Razgrad is different, smaller city in Bulgaria , close to Silistra . There is not reason after Silistra , to put Razgrad. Silistra is not part of district of Razgrad . They are two different and separated cities and districts of Bulgaria and it's a big mistake to put after the name of Silistra in the location, the name of Razgrad. Please, make the necessary changes. It's not good too see one of the biggest cities of Bulgaria , put as a part of a smaller and different city and municipality of Bulgaria. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.90.14.143 (talk) 07:55, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: rough consensus not to move. Andrewa (talk) 02:58, 4 April 2011 (UTC)


SilistraSilistra,_Bulgaria — The change is needed in order to show the name of the country, not only the name of the city. This way it will be more precise. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nevca (talkcontribs)

There's no need for that. The name of the country is only added when there's another place of the same name in order to disambiguate between the two. See Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names) and particularly Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names)#Disambiguation. There is no other Silistra, so there is no reason to move. Thanks for initiating a discussion instead of moving the article yourself though, that's the correct way to do it! Best, Toдor Boжinov 16:17, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Oppose if this is the only place named "Silistra", see above reasoning. JIP | Talk 17:37, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Completely unnecessary. -- Necrothesp (talk) 10:52, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Dristor neighborhood in Bucharest[edit]

The "Dristor" district of Bucharest has nothing to do with Silistra or Durostorum. The name "dristor" comes from the word "dârstar".[1]

climate data[edit]

There's a certain mistake in the climate data for record low temperature, which reads -13 Celsius degrees. It simply cannot be because in that case Silistra would have the same climate as Trieste and Istanbul and would be surrounded by palmtrees. The record low for that latitude and inland position should be at least -26 degrees.
