 Veliko Turnovo
VELIKO TARNOVO is one of the oldest cities in Bulgaria. It has more than five thousand years of history. The city is famous as the historical capital of the Second Bulgarian Empire, attracting many tourists with its unique architecture.
The old part of the city is situated on the three hills Tsarevets, Trapezitsa, and Sveta Gora rising amidst the meanders of the river Yantra.

During your city break in Veliko Tarnovo you can visit Trapezitsa Hill, Archaeological museum, The Museum of the Bulgarian National Revival and the Constituent Assembly, Samovodska charshia and Tsarevets Hill Archaeological Reserve, which is one of the symbols of Veliko Tarnovo. The audio-visual show "Sound and Light" on Tsarevets hill is unique for Europe, actually such shows are organized in no more than three places around the world. Dramatic music, multi-coloured lights, lasers and church bells, combined in one show, recall about the glorious and tragic history of the Second Bulgarian Empire.


Surroundings:
Arbanasi: is museum-village, situated 4 km north-east of Veliko Tarnovo, which used to be the summer residence of Bulgarian kings. This is one of the most beautiful Bulgarian villages. The fortress-houses there are beautiful with ground floor build of solid stone and second floor build of wood, most of which are now turned into restaurants or small private owned hotels. Today many of these houses are turned into museums too and are open for visitors. Anyway the most interesting places from touristic point of view are the four churches of the ancient village – “St George”, “St Atanasus”, “St Demetrius” and “The Nativity of Christ”, who are remarkable examples of the Bulgarian fine arts from 14th to 18th centuries, along with the two monasteries “Assumption of the Virgin” and “St Nicholas”. Buried in the greenery of the walnut trees, Arbanassi offers an outstanding view of Tsarevetz and Trapezitsa hills.
