Veliko Tarnovo keeps the secret of one Old Bulgarian capital, a city with Great History and Cultural flair which you can feel today.
Veliko Tarnovo is located in Central North Bulgaria about a 2,5 hours’ drive from Sofia. Being the capital of Bulgaria for over two centuries, Veliko Tarnovo was one of the major cities in Medieval Europe. Not much has left from these days in terms of monuments, as most of them have been destroyed when the Ottoman Empire took over the Bulgarian Kingdom. Still, Veliko Tarnovo is one of the most popular Bulgarian tourist destinations among the locals because of the Medieval castle Tsarevets and the beautiful architecture from the National Revival (18 – 19 c).
Besides plenty of historical sites and museums, Veliko Tarnovo offers also lots of cultural experiences. The city has been developing itself as a cultural hub in the last years, and the whole year around there are festivals, various activities, shows and happenings that make Veliko Tarnovo a vibrant city.
