Veliko Tarnovo (Veliko Turnovo) is often referred to as the "City of the Tsars", as it is famous as the historical capital of the Second Bulgarian Empire, attracting many tourists with its unique architecture. The town is situated 240 km north-east of Sofia, 42 km north-east of Tryavna and 106 km south-west of Rousse.
The old city is situated on three hills, Tsarevets, Trapezitsa and Sveta Gora raising amidst the meanders of the Yantra. Tsarevets housed the palaces of the Bulgarian Emperors and the Patriarchate, as well as a number of administrative and residential edifices surrounded by thick walls. Trapezitsa was known for its many churches and as the main residence of the nobility. In the Middle Ages it was among the main European centres of culture and gave its name to the Tarnovo Artistic School of architecture, painting and literature.
Very valuable are the architectural monuments of the National Revival period – a multitude of churches, monasteries and houses that were built by talented Bulgarian masters. The largest number of churches and monasteries in Bulgaria is in Veliko Tarnovo Region which is a very good condition for the development of pilgrimage tourism. Place of interest also is the village of Arbanasi - a unique ensemble of fortified stone-made houses and richly painted churches.
