Veliko Tarnovo City Tour | Tours of Bulgaria

ACTIVITY SUMMARY

A day trip to the old Bulgarian Capital - Veliko Tarnovo from Sofia sounds like a great plan!

Located on the beautiful Yantra river with old traditional houses spread all around several hills, this place will grab your love by its charm.

ACTIVITY DETAILS

Let us take you from any point in Sofia city, preferably early in the morning, any day of the week, and to take you to Veliko Tarnovo within three hours drive. You are about to spend four to five hours of exploring the town and then to be driven back to Sofia, dropped off at any point of your wish in the city. Veliko Tarnovo is famous of its natural beauty and historical importance. Once in the city, we are about to take you to Asenevtsi monument - dedicated to the famous Bulgarian kings - Asen, Petar, Kaloyan and Asen II. We would then continue to the old town Varusha where you would be amazed of the many little craft shops for traditional Bulgarian household items and souvenirs. We would recommend you a place to have nice traditional lunch in one of the many cozy restaurants around. Top of the cake would be visiting of Tsarevets fortress and the Holy Forty Martyrs Church where the tombs of the Bulgarian Kings are. Tsarevets had been the main fortress of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom when Tarnovo had been a capital of it. Its scale, walls and views are breath taking even nowadays. Optional would be observation of the "Sound and Light" evening show on the walls of the fortress at selected days of the year - this is on a supplementary basis and should be specifically requested in advance.
