Description

Starting from Sofia, you will visit many important sights, such as Samovodska Charshiya Complex, Asen's Monument, Ulitsa General Gurko and many many more that reflect the history of Bulgaria.

Take a walking tour around the medieval hill-fortress of Tsarevets – the capital of Bulgaria from 12th till 14th century. The earliest evidence of human presence on the hill dates from the 2nd millennium BC. After the Vlach-Bulgarian Rebellion and the establishment of the Second Bulgarian Empire, the fortress became the most important fortress in Bulgaria, usually compared with Rome and Constantinople in magnificence. 

After that, you will continue to Arbanassi and visit the astonishing Nativity of Jesus Church with unique frescoes depicting 2000 biblical scenes and over 3500 images of saints. The magnificent architectural reserve of Arbanassi is located on a plateau granting visitors with superb views of the Balkan Mountains and Veliko Tarnovo.

You will also visit the Samovodska Charshiya Complex in Veliko Tarnovo. It was developed as a business centre during the Bulgarian revival and there are many craft shops, which have preserved a centuries-old tradition of craftsmanship. 

Another important monument in Veliko Tarnovo is the Asen's Monument, located in the city centre and it consists of statues that depict the four Asen rulers.
