What shall I see

At the beginning of the tour we will head towards the Shipka Memorial Church which is a beautiful Bulgarian Orthodox temple built between 1885 and 1902 near Shipka town located at the foothills of the Balkan Range. The Shipka Monument complex was built in honor of the Russian, Ukrainian and Bulgarian soldiers who died for the liberation of Bulgaria in the Russo – Turkish War in 1877-78.

Afterwards, we arrive in Arbanassi – one of Bulgaria’s most spectacular villages. Famous for it's rich history and historical monuments, which are great examples of Bulgarian National Revival architecture. We will explore the oldest church in the village – Nativity of Christ (1637 – 1649), which is now dug into the ground without a belfry and with hidden cupola. It is fully painted from the inside and contains over 3 500 stunningly realistic figures and Biblical scenes, who were painted by unknown artists throughout the ages.

Then we head towards the Konstantsalieva house museum which was originally built in the 17-th century and since then has been beautifully restored in National Revival style. It shows not only the wealth of the owners but also how much attention to detail they gave of that time. Next on the itinary is Arbanassi. This charming town is situated at 210 m a. s. l. on the Yantra River. Historically it is the capital of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom and many tourists still enjoy unique architecture and beautiful landscapes. The first site we explore there is the imposing Tsarevets Fortress which is a medieval stronghold located on a hill with the same name. Tsarevets was also used as the Bulgarian Empire’s primary fortress and strongest bulwark from 1185 to 1393.

We end the tour with a walk along the lovely Veliko Tarnovo main street, as well as the picturesque Gourko Street and finally the authentic Samovodska Charshiya Street in the Old Town where you can see some crafts exhibits, pieces of art and traditional souvenirs.
