DescriptionVeliko Tarnovo is one of the oldest settlements in Bulgaria, with a history of more than 5 millennia. In the Middle Ages between the 12th and 14th-centuries, the city grew quickly to become the strongest Bulgarian fortification and the most important political, economical, cultural and religious center of the second Bulgarian empire. The old part of the city is situated on the 3 hills Tsarevets, Trapezitsa, and Sveta Gora, rising amidst the meanders of the Yantra river. You will visit Tsarevets, where the palaces of the Bulgarian emperors and the patriarchate are situated. On Trapezitsa, which was the former main royal residence, you will see many churches. Whilst in Veliko Tarnovo you will have the opportunity to enjoy a great view of the fortress and take some photos before setting off on a climb to Baldwin's Tower on the top of the medieval hill. On your way back to the vehicle, you can see the Assen's Dynasty monument, before finally doing a bit of souvenir shopping.
