What I love about Veliko Tarnovo
Tsarevets Fortress is obviously Veliko’s main attraction, and worth visiting, but what I really love about this town are two streets in particular. The first one is Samovodska Charshya, a historical street that’s quite popular. Fully pedestrian and with colorful 19th century Bulgarian Revival houses, this former trade street is once again full or artisans that do a good job at recreating the town's historical atmosphere. The second one is Gurko Street, which isn't very well known, but the views are gorgeous and I love taking this walk whenever stopping a bit in Veliko. The best views are when you pass by Hotel Gurko, and can enjoy a panoramic view over Veliko’s inner valley, the Ivan Asen monument and the State Art gallery.
