This 12-hour excursion begins in the early morning with a pickup from your Bucharest accommodation followed by a drive to the foothills of the Balkan Mountains. Spend an enjoyable day discovering the impressive medieval settlement of Veliko Tarnovo. Veliko Tarnovo was the medieval capital of Bulgaria and is home of the Tsaravets Fortress, the strongest Bulgarian fortification of the Middle Ages. After immersing yourself in the charms of Veliko Tarnovo and savoring a delightful lunch, the tour proceeds to Ruse, renowned as one of Bulgaria's most refined cities. It exudes a hint of Central European splendor, a distinctive feature seldom encountered elsewhere in the country. It's a city embellished with grand belle époque architecture and meticulously tended green squares, reminiscent of a small slice of Vienna that has gracefully floated down the Danube.
