Overview
Visit the capital of the second Bulgarian Empire wich was Veliko Tarnovo. This empire was a medieval state that existed between 1185 and 1396 and included parts from Romania, Serbia, Greece and Turcia. Visit the inescapable symbol of Veliko Târnovo, this reconstructed fortress dominates the skyline and is one of Bulgaria’s most beloved monuments. The former seat of the medieval tsars, it hosts the remains of more than 400 houses, 18 churches, the royal palace, an execution rock and more. The fortress morphs into a psychedelic spectacle with a magnificent night-time Sound & Light Show. Visit the village of Arbanassi situated on a high plateau overseeing the Trapezitsa and Tsarevets hills. The settlement saw its bloom in the 17-18th c. when it grew into a wealthy crafts and trade hub. It was during that period that most of its gorgeous houses were erected.
