Full description
You will start your trip with a stop by a very famous Bulgarian church, very near to the Romanian border. The Ivanovo Churches are UNESCO heritage since 1979 and are highly appreciated for the rock-hewn churches and thanks to their impressive XIII-XIV century fresco. After this, continue your journey towards the heart of Bulgaria, where one of the most amazing cities of this country is located. Veliko Tarnovo is located on the banks of Yantra River, also known as the City of Tsars, Veliko boasts an impressive fortress with the ruins of the former Tsarevets Palace and the patriarchal church, today with modern and intriguing paintings. After Veliko Tarnovo, a visit by a most wonderful village follows. You will discover together the famous stone village of Arbanassi. This is the only village in Bulgaria that keeps the old architecture style of Bulgarian medieval times. With the batteries full charged you will drive back to Bucharest. You arrive back around 20:00.

Amazing day - their suggestion for lunch- Awesome!

We really enjoyed our day - take their suggestion for lunch - it was the best food on our trip - unfortunately our guide was sick, my husband ended up sick two days later. We pushed thru the next week with him coughing. I overall recommend this tour.

Very good but the visits are a little at a step of load ... we had to walk a lot due to blocked roads and the guide was going too fast for us so it was not pleasant. Otherwise it's very nice to visit :)

The tour guide only spoke bad, broken English and couldn't tell us anything about Bulgaria. Only standard sentences came via Romania. He was unfamiliar with the local courts of Bulgaria. There were no detailed explanations from him about the sights.
