  • The ruins of a medieval fortress located on a hill above the town of Shumen. The bulk of the buildings belongs to the XIV-XV centuries, although there are more historic buildings, built in the days of the Roman Empire. Very impressed with the small track, on the sides of which are respectively the Roman and later Byzantine wall. The difference is very noticeable architectural features. The fortress was destroyed by the Turks in the year 1444 and since then stands in ruins. Little is preserved, but looks, however, very impressive.
