Discover Veliko Tarnovo by Private Van with Optional Guide
Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria
- GoBe an explorer: Visit massively walled Castle Tsarevets above the Old City, which stood unconquered for 200 years. Admire the frescoes inside reconstructed Patriarchal Cathedral, towering higher yet. Cringe at the thought of what went on at Execution Rock. Wind your way through a marvelous jumble of heritage buildings marching up slopes that hug the Yantra River's curves. Hit the museums, visit the churches and monuments, cross the bridges, and refuel at the cafes. Browse the artisan workshops of the Samovodska Charshia Quarter. Head up to Arbanassi village to see fortress-like homes built by 17th-century Ottoman traders, intriguing churches, and a convent where a Three-Armed Virgin icon has been venerated for centuries. Rehydrate with locally brewed Bolyarka beer.
- Get out of town: Between old Veliko Tarnovo and its vibrant new town, you've got tons to see and do. But if you're got wider wandering in mind, give GoBe 48 hours' notice. We can arrange to whisk you where you want to go – maybe over the hills to Gabrovo's monasteries, then up and over scenic Shipka Pass to the hardwood forests, alpine meadows, and rugged canyons of Central Balkan National Park.
Pick-up is included from select hotels. Please specify your hotel name and location during check-out.
Dress for the weather with flat, comfortable shoes for walking and don't forget your sunscreen and bottled water. Bring local currency for optional food and souvenir purchases and your photo ID.
