Sofia, Bulgaria

The fort Tsarevets is iconic for Veliko Tarnovo and the Second Bulgarian Empire. This the place where the nobles(or the bolyars as they are called) and the royal family used to live. The place is beautiful and it is organised as a museum. There is an audiovisual show which consists of the fort being covered with colourful light and music accompanying the spectacle.

First to Review

This is the premier attraction in Veliko Turnovo, dominating the city skyline and providing stunning views over the surrounding area. Parts of the fortress have been relatively well reconstructed and maintained, but it’s still pretty much an old ruin. It plays an important role in Bulgarian history and used to be the former seat of the medieval tsars. Whilst it’s a far cry from its original grandeur, it’s still an absolute must in the city and makes for an enjoyable couple of hours walking around the site.
