Veliko Turnovo is one of the old capitals of Bulgaria. After the end of the Byzantine rule in the Bulgarian lands in 1185 the city became capital and it kept this status until the fall under Ottoman reign. It was a significant political, religious and cultural center during the late Medieval ages. Nowadays the remains of the Medieval fortress on the Tsarevec hill could be seen and also a reconstruction of the Patriarchal church. The tourists in the city have the opportunity to visit the museum of the Bulgarian revival with the prison. There are also an Archeological museum and ethnographic museum called “The Sarafkina House”. Veliko Turnovo is crossed by the river Yantra and that gives a very beautiful view from the city center. Next to the city there is a small and interesting village, which is stated for an architectural-museum reservation. Every single part from Arbanasi has its history and it gives the village unique atmosphere. By taking this tour you will see some of the most beautiful churches, built during the period of the Ottoman period.
