Welcome to Veliko Tarnovo – the old capital of Bulgaria.
The town of Tarnovo with its unique fortress Tsarevets was the spiritual and cultural centre of Bulgarian during the Second Bulgarian Kingdom.
Among the unapproachable rocks and pinnacles, surrounded by the hills Trapezitsa, Sveta gora and Tsarevets, the town of Veliko Tarnovo combines history themselves, present and future together.
Strolling along the narrow streets in the ancient town, we can enjoy the houses, strangely perched one over another, the small workshops on the Samovodska charshia, the houses of the Bulgarian national revival on Gurko Street.
The spiritual life in the old capital is contributed by many monasteries and churches.
