  • Fresco remains inside it, though there is some of the old church is a new church was apparently so did not expect that was vivid colors than you think. Also with tombs, such as the Emperor Kaloyan so worth seeing.

  • Forty Martyrs Church was built in the 13th century. Known, first and foremost, the ancient columns, which left a Bulgarian inscriptions khans Krum and Omurtag, Tsar Ivan Asen II of Bulgaria. In addition, the Church buried the Kings Kaloyan and Ivan Asen II of Bulgaria, there are sarcophagi with land from burial places of other great rulers of Bulgaria, including founder State Khan Asparukh. Here also was proclaimed the independence of Bulgaria from the Ottoman Empire. Inside the Church is practically empty and very modest. According to legend, when it will be restored in its grandeur, reborn again the great Bulgaria. But, alas, no reconstruction has been held for many years.

  • A must see piece of Bulgarian history in Veliko Tarnovo and probably the only known burial site of a Bulgarian ruler.
  • pretty, but not much
  • History talks itself.
  • Lots of history there, too...
  • Beautiful church exclusively, but the charge input is insanely irritating. The municipality of Veliko Tarnovo is a high time to offer a ticket to rally the attractions there.
