  • The fort itself is outside the entrance gates a ruin: some stones on each other and that it is the sight that you have is fantastic: on the one hand, a gap with the city, on the other hand a green gap the entrance gate with the drawbridge and the wooden overbruggi NG is very nice reconstructed this way you can take a nice walk the access is also neatly constructed and maintained entrance is low (€2)

  • Ovech fortress is located on top of a flat as a table whose form Kaleto plateau vessel and stretching from North to South. Something similar to the Crimean Cuesta. Stations of the fortress can be reached by a long, winding staircase Today from the fortress remained completely refurbished bridge between the Castle and the plateau of Thabit, a few wells to collect water (one of them with a depth of 80 m.), the ruins of several churches, Guard towers. The castle was founded by the Byzantines, then used the Bulgarian khans and Turks. In 1409 Ovech became the center of the uprising led by Fruzhinom, the son of Ivan Original. In 1413 Musa, the son of Bayezid, again captured the Castle and began to suppress the uprising. Troops of the Polish-Hungarian King Vladislav III Varnenchik-Jagiello attacked the Fort in the year 1444 and destroyed it completely. After the defeat of Wladyslaw III in Varna, the Turks captured the fortress again, but did not begin to recover, leaving only a small garrison. After that, the zahirela fortress and was abandoned.
