Veliko Turnovo is the capital of the Second Bulgarian Empire (1185 - 1393). Do not miss the unique chance to visit this unusual city, whose pretty whitewashed houses seem to have perched one above the other on the steep bank of the Yantra river.

Firstly, you will be greatly impressed by Tsarevets - the site of the patriarchial church and royal palaces, the hill where Boudouin's Tower rises majestically and tells the legendary story of the Latin Emperor Baudouin of Flanders who was captured by Tsar Kaloyan. Then you will admire the beauty and charm of another hill - Trapezitsa. You will marvel and enthuse over the Bulgarian National Revival period architectural ensembles along Gurko Street, the old Nikoli Inn and the St. Constantine and Helena Church. The original Samovodene Market has been brought back to life. As in old times, skilful craftsmen work out and sell exquisite objects in the small restored workshops. At night, proud Tsarevets lends the natural decor to a fantastic sound and light show.
