The royal city of Veliko Turnovo, the capital of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom (1187-1393) is situated on three hills -Tsarevets, Trapezitsa and Sveta Gora. These are circled by the deep cutting Yantra River above whose magnificent gorges sheer rocks rise into the sky. Perched one above the other on the rocks the houses reach right down to the riverbank.

Veliko Turnovo is more than just a beautiful city surrounded by magnificent scenery. It is a city that is destined to survive. It is a city that you should see!
