DescriptionVeliko Tarnovo was the medieval capital of Bulgaria. The town flourished between the 12th and 14th century, when the territory of Bulgaria spanned over most of the Balkans. During the 5th century of Ottoman oppression, the town developed as a merchant and craftsman town with distribution channels extending into North Africa and Central Europe. Nowadays, the town has often been ranked by the media as the most beautiful and pleasant Bulgarian city to live in. Veliko Tarnovo and the nearby architectural reserve Arbanassi are included in almost every tour agency’s round-trip itinerary, while famous guidebooks define it as a must-see tourist attraction. Despite the long transfer time from Sofia (three hours) you will quickly understand why it's worth the journey. On this tour, you will see all of the major tourist highlights in Veliko Tarnovo and Arbanassi in an intriguing and educational way.
