Veliko Tarnovo was once the capital of Bulgaria, now it is one of the most popular tourists destinations internationally and in Bulgaria. The way the city is laid out shows its age, it strikes you with its originality, many of the houses there are located on the steep cliffs and banks dug by the ancient Yantra river.
The main attraction of the city is the medieval fortress of Tsarevets which was once the former residence of the Bulgarian kings. Near Veliko Turnovo is located a cozy, small village called Arbanasi which was once an important resting place for the royalty that ruled down in Turnovo. Through the village you can see many old houses, some of which even resemble small fortresses. Quite a lot of them are now museums which can be entered and explored.
An example of such a house is the Konstantsalieva house, there you can learn about the way its inhabitants lived during the 18th century. Near Arbanassi is the Nunnery “Holy Virgin” with its miraculous icon. See all of this and a lot more on one of our tours.
