What to Expect

Veliko Tarnovo was the medieval capital of Bulgaria. The town flourished between the 12th and 14th centuries when the territory of Bulgaria spanned over most of the Balkans. During the 5 century of Ottoman oppression, the town developed as a merchant and craftsmen town with “distribution channels” extending into North Africa and Central Europe. Nowadays, the town has often been ranked by the media as the mostbeautiful 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 (3hrs), you will quickly understand why it's worth doing it. The tour’s goal is to present to you, in an intriguing and educational way, all of the major tourist highlights in Veliko Tarnovo and Arbanassi.


Enjoy a full-day tour to Bulgaria’s medieval capital. Admire some of the most spectacular sceneries that north Bulgaria has to offer. Take a walking tour in the iconic hill-fortress Tsarevets.
