  • Very well restored old church. It is only used for services once a year. Beware the "guide" who offers to open 2 other - very interesting - churches but who is totally dishonest about the charge.  more »
  • The opening hours are 9-18 h and there is a ticket: 6 lv per person but it is worthwhile as you could see ancient writing valuable for Bulgarian history.  more »
  • Very nice ortodox church, burried place of St.Sava, the first archbishop of Serbia. After visiting the fortress just climb down to visit this very interesting church complex.  more »

  • Pay for the tour to see the other two churches as well, worth the price and time.
  • A must see piece of Bulgarian history in Veliko Tarnovo and probably the only known burial site of a Bulgarian ruler.
  • The tombs of the very first Bulgarian rulers.
  • pretty, but not much
  • History talks itself.
