Veliko Tarnovo Travel Guide

Veliko Tarnovo

One of Bulgaria's oldest settlements, Veliko Tarnovo is a popular weekend getaway for Bulgaria's upper-middle-class urbanites and a stop on the backpacker trail. It's an idyllic small town through which the Yantra River runs and terracotta-roofed homes sit on the ridges above it. Though there are several expat-run businesses, Veliko Tarnovo manages to maintain an air of Old World charm.
