Properties and real estate in Arbanasi for sale and rent
Arbanasi (or Arbanassi) is a village in Veliko Tarnovo municipality. It is set on a high plateau between the larger towns of Veliko Tarnovo (four kilometres away) and Gorna Oryahovitsa. The picturesque atmosphere of the village is due to the unique architecture of the houses - each with high and strong surrounding walls and massive wooden gates.
In 1921, the village was declared a holiday complex via a royal decree, while since 2000, it has been recognised as “a historical village” of national importance. The architectural museum that the entire Arbanasi represents has 144 renovated houses, 5 churches with rich internal decoration and 2 monasteries. Apart from the abundance of tourist sights, the village also offers plenty of hotels and nice restaurants to its visitors.
The whole complex is a remarkable site. The famous Arbanasi houses are unique. The oldest buildings are similar with the Tarnovo boyar house. They are like small fortresses, completely made of stone. They have strong stone gates and sentry – boxes. It is not only the remarkable houses that are very interesting in Arbanasi. There are spectacular fountains with big eaves – Kokonska and Pazarska fountains and the seven Arbanassi churches are among the most – remarkable monuments of the Bulgarian art.
