This town was the Bulgarian capital during the so-called Second Bulgarian Kingdom between the 12th and 14th centuries. Here, you will be able to feel the medieval spirit. Veliko Tarnovo is situated along several big hills and the river Yantra. The well-preserved fortress is remarkable. Discover some of the very old churches and see beautiful panoramic views. Bellow the fortress are some of the old merchant streets, which still present old-style crafts.  Afterward, head to the nearby small village of Arbanasi, an architectural resort, famous for its old stone houses and great places for lunch. Then return to Sofia for approximately 7:00 PM.
