Tour two of northern Bulgaria’s top attractions on this private 10-hour tour from Sofia. Visit the traditional village of Arbanasi, famous for its rich past and fresco-coated Church of the Nativity. Then, continue to Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria’s former medieval capital and home to the Tsarevets palace-fortress. Tour the hilltop ruins, including the main church and execution rock, where traitors were pushed to the deaths, and discover the town’s history. Private transport and entrance fees included.
Excellent tour to really interesting historical sites that would be really hard to reach any other way. Methodiy was an excellent and informative guide, with a real appreciation for the archaeology and history.
Veliko Tarnovo and Arbanasi are lovely old cities, it is a little far from Sofia, but it is well worth the trip. My guide was fantastic, a man with lot of knowledge, and he was very keen and showed that there he really loved his job.
Le site est passionnant pour quiconque s'intéresse à l'archéologie et/ou à l'histoire. Arbanassi est petit, propose une rénovation du village intéressante. L'église est très originale mais il est regrettable que sa petite taille ne soit pas mieux gérée dans l'accès donné aux groupes : les guides de groupes nombreux ayant tendance à croire un peu trop facilement avoir une quelconque priorité sur des visiteurs en private tour
