  • With a fantastic view of the entire city, river and hills surrounding Veliko, the monument is inevitably visited by everyone. In the summer there is a small coffee terrace where you can sit and relax.  more »
  • For me, there is the more remarkable of Veliko Tarnovo, if you see it from afar and not want to approach you do not lose anything, since its best view is from a distance. Oki eye! What if it is all very well the views of the city reflected in the River from the bridge that leads to the monument, only that is worth.

  • The monument of ve from much of the city, and where is located the monument, are very good views over the houses 'hanging' on the river. The Museum of art is next to the monument, and is free on Thursdays.
