  • Specifically to this fortress we did not anticipate. We were driving from Veliko Tarnovo in Varna and originally intended for lunch in Shumen (lunch).

The truth is, no one looks, so we recommend that all valuable to take with them. On the ruins of an old Fort can walk for a long time, but in my unenlightened opinion, they are all very similar. Specialists of ancient antiquities, will certainly be interesting to see the differences between the ruins of the 4th century and say, 11. There is no place to eat, so it recommends take water and something to eat. Look under your feet-ladder, stairs and just stones everywhere and underfoot.
