Empire Seat Hop

9-10 hour tour

Thracians, Romans, Byzantines, Slavs, Bulgars, Byzantines again, Bulgarians, Turks and Bulgarians again: there goes the history of the Tsarevets, the fortress overlooking most of Veliko Tarnovo. And while anyone but a history buff might find this appealing, let us only say that, at the time when quite a lot of the lands around – and Europe for that matter – were in the Dark Ages, this was the capital of a mighty empire, the Second Bulgarian Empire. So let us name only three reasons to visit this great town: the aforementioned Tsarevets Fortress, the excellently preserved old household architecture and the superb Hadji Nikoli Khana (inn), where one can enjoy a glass of great Bulgarian dry red. So, nazdrave!

Tour to Veliko Tarnovo, taking in a short walk across Ruse old town, and including a visit to the Tsarevets, as well as a peek in the Hadji Nikoli Inn plus a walk across the old architectural district in Veliko Tarnovo.
