Day Tour to Veliko Tarnovo and Arbanassi from Sofia
Veliko Tarnovo from Sofia
Veliko Tarnovo beckons you to explore the true Bulgarian traditions. We start our trip from the Samovodska Charshiya Street, an architectural reserve with craft workshops for pottery, copper items, wood carving, icon painting and traditional sweets.
Then we drop by the Hadji Nikoli Inn, commissioned by a famous Veliko Tarnovo tradesman in the 19th C. The inn resembles a Venetian palace and still features a restaurant, a cafe and a wine-bar with a wine shop.
We climb up to the Tsarevets fortress which for 200 years served as the stronghold of Bulgarian kings. It is also possible to observe the evening audiovisual show which takes you through centennial history.
Afterwards we take a 3-kilometer drive to the Arbanassi architectural reserve. The place impresses with its monumental houses and churches including the Church of the Holy Nativity, the oldest in the reserve. We lunch or dine at one of the many traditional restaurants with Bulgarian specialties on their menu.
